Catalogue Number: 11J044

Label: Naxos

Reference: 8.570330

Format: CD

Price: $11.98

Description: Dating from around 1820, Ries' quartets integrate the flute into the string trio, producing the equivalent of a Beethovenian string quartet where one of the instruments is a wind instrument. No soloistic capers for the flute - or, better to say that it is, at best, first among equals in what is serious, early Romantic chamber music. John Herrick Littlefield (flute), Aaron Boyd (violin), Ah Ling New (viola), Yari Bond (cello).
