These four CDs, containing all eight of Ries' symphonies, have found their ideal interpreters in the Zurich Chamber Orchestra under Howard Griffiths: \The interpretation is superb. It is astonishing how Griffiths is able to charge the small ensemble with dramatic force. An inspiring and rousing recording" (Stereoplay). Previous praise for the Ries Symphonies as single CDs includes plaudits from 'BBC Music Magazine': "These are inventive works....melodically performed here with energy and passion."

Ferdinand Ries belonged to a generation of symphonists who have been unfairly neglected in the annals of music history, due to unfortunate nineteenth-century comparisons of all symphonists to Beethoven. Ries, as Beethoven's student, was by no means exempt from this yardstick, but is slowly regaining the credit and public awareness that has always been his due."
