Ferdinand Ries grew up in the same musical environment that nurtured Beethoven, both counting Ferdinandís father Franz as one of their teachers and the two of them becoming the closest of friends. Ries was a gifted and prolific composer in every instrumental genre. His Violin Sonatas are based on the Viennese Classical style established by Mozart but with a freshness and originality that includes movements such as the Adagio of the Sonata, op.38 no.3, one of Riesís loveliest creations. The Sonatas op.38 nos. 1 and 2 can be heard on the second volume of this edition (8573717), Ďunreservedly recommendedí by Fanfare magazine.
