Catalogue Number: 09K047
Description: With all of the Ries that has come out over the last decade, listeners will not be at all surprised, listening to these two prophetic, forward-looking sonatas from 1807-08 and Sonatina of 1812, to find themselves absent-mindedly wondering if they've been hearing a newly discovered sonata by Beethoven, Schubert or even Mendelssohn. Susan Kagan (piano).
