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.Audio for this box set can be found with the individual volumes here:8557638 Ries: Piano Concertos, Vol. 1https://b2b.naxosusa.com/Album.aspx?product=8557638&medium=phy8557844 Ries: Piano Concertos, Vol. 2https://b2b.naxosusa.com/Album.aspx?product=8557844&medium=phy8570440 Ries: Piano Concertos, Vol. 3https://b2b.naxosusa.com/Album.aspx?product=8570440&medium=phy8572088 Ries: Piano Concertos, Vol. 4https://b2b.naxosusa.com/Album.aspx?product=8572088&medium=phy8572742 Ries: Piano Concertos, Vol. 5https://b2b.naxosusa.com/Album.aspx?product=8572742&medium=phy
