Ferdinand Ries's father was a teacher of Beethoven. Ferdinand then studied piano with Beethoven, but would not take the young Ries as a composition student because he sounded too much like his master.

The two trios on the cd are from very different times in his career. While listening to the first one I kept thinking that this music sounded what Mozart may have written has he lived into the 19th century. Very delicate melodies, great interplay among the trio members and a minimum of sturm und drang.

The latter piece sounds a bit more post Beethoven, perhaps anticipating Mendelssohn.

For anyone interested in piano trios this is a wonderful record, one that will have its place right next to Beethoven's piano trios, and it will certainly get a lot of play in my home.
