Ferdinand Ries penned no fewer than six quartets for flute and string trio, a quintet for flute, violin, two violas, and violoncello, a trio for piano, flute, and violoncello more works than for any other wind instrument. As in his symphonies and string quartets, Ries proves himself to be an entirely independent and original composer. The Ardinghello Ensemble adheres to historical performance practice, with Karl Kaiser playing transverse flutes from the early nineteenth century and the string players on instruments with stringing and bows from around 1820.
