These four CDs, containing all eight of Riesí symphonies, have found their ideal interpreters in the Zurich Chamber Orchestra under Howard Griffiths: ď
Ferdinand Ries belonged to a generation of symphonists who have been unfairly neglected in the annals of music history, due to unfortunate nineteenth-century comparisons of all symphonists to Beethoven. Ries, as Beethovenís student, was by no means exempt from this yardstick, but is slowly regaining the credit and public awareness that has always been his due.
