This is the fourth disc in a series that sets Beethoven’s sonatas in their social and musical context. The Opus 23 & 24 (Frühlingssonate) Sonatas were commissioned by Baron Moritz de Fries and were first performed in Vienna 1800. The connection with Ferdinand Ries was that his father had been a teacher of violin technique to Beethoven, and Beethoven reciprocated with piano lessons for Ferdinand, when he settled in Vienna in 1801.
