Catalogue Number: 07K033
Description: Ries collectors will have to bite the bullet and fork out for the 16-minute sonata which, like much of this composer's work, is not dated but which shows a familiarity with Beethoven's op. 30 sonatas, suggesting a date of sometime after 1802. Thus, a "student work" in which the resemblances to his teacher of the time are understandable. Peter Sheppard Skærved (violin), Aaron Shorr (piano).
