Christopher Hinterhuber Continues To Record Ferdinand Ries’ Piano Concertos

June 22, 2008

From June 2 to 3, pianist Christopher Hinterhuber and conductor Uwe Grodd, performing with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, recorded the fourth volume of the complete works for piano and orchestra by German composer Ferdinand Ries. A close associate of Beethoven and "justly celebrated as one of the finest piano-performers of the present day" according to the influential music journal the London Harmonicon, Ries’ music is little known today. Nevertheless, his piano concertos stand alongside those of Hummel as major works from the early 19th century. Recorded were the Piano Concerto in C minor, Op. 115, Piano Concerto in D "Pastorale", Op. 120 and Rondo Wo054.

Sessions took place at Lighthouse in Poole, Bournemouth, and were produced and engineered by Tim Handley.
