This second volume of Ferdinand Riess violin sonatas furthers our exploration of music by a gifted composer who enjoyed a close and productive relationship with Beethoven as student, friend, and colleague. Filled with elegance and refinement, these three sonatas display the range of Riess creative gifts as a composer, skilfully synthesising the clarity and discipline of Mozarts Viennese Classical style with the inventiveness and freedom of the new Romanticism developing in the early 19th century. Volume 1 (8.573193) was regarded as simply too good to miss by MusicWeb International.
