Description: Possibly the first and certainly the last of Ries' sonatas are here in this final volume. The B minor work probably dates from 1801 and is somber and dark and often clearly influenced by Beethoven; the Op. 176 dates from 1832 and is clearly Romantic in spirit with a finale which suggests the manner and style of late Schubert sonatas while the Op. 114 is warm and cheerful and brisk and assertive by turns. Susan Kagan (piano).
