    Reveries of an early Romantic pianist-composer

    Ferdinand Ries was among the first wave of virtuoso pianist-composer of the early years of the Romantic period, one who had the great distinction of studying with Beethoven. Although he composed music for diverse forces, the sheer number of his works for the piano dwarfs his efforts in other genres. As a composer, he was thought to be very much under the influence of Beethoven, and, on the basis of the two sonatas recorded here, that seems to be a fair assessment. Both, however, display moments of great melodic charm and restless forward impetus. With the third piece, entitled The Dream, we seem to be privy to Ries's more individual style, and in the thick of Romanticism; the piece has an appropriately meandering quality that shifts through diverse moods before ending on a gently playful note.
