About this release

This premiere release contains pianoforte quintets by two early Romantics. Ferdinand Ries is best known for being a favourite pupil of Beethoven. In his works he takes distance from the Classicism and is the forerunner of Romantics like Mendelssohn and Schumann. Franz Limmer's quintet is an amazing piece, full of virtuosity and stormy romantic emotions.

Other information:
- Beautifully and with great dedication played by the Nepomuk Fortepiano Quintet, playing on period instruments.
- Excellent 16 page booklet with illuminating texts on the composers and the musicians.
