Description: The 1799 sonata in C minor is among the first of its genre, the 15-year-old Ries already showing remarkable talent in its Sturm und Drang moods. The trio was admired in its day for its ingenuity of modulations and fashionable London society lapped up the exotic themes of the shorter two works. Martin Rummel (cello), Stefan Stroissnig (piano), Eric Lamb (flute).
