The Great Escape - Music & More

Ferdinand Ries' works for piano and orchestra stand alongside those of Hummel as the finest and most important of their kind from the early decades of the 19th century. Ries was long remembered as Beethoven's friend, pupil, and secretary, but these recordings reveal the intense lyricism and rugged Beethovenian grandeur of this pianist-composer's piano concertos. A rich variety of companion pieces renowned for their brilliant juxtapositions of ravishing beauty and exceptional pianistic virtuosity are also included.
