Franz Ries (7 April 1846 – 20 January 1932) was a Romantic German violinist and composer, son of Hubert Ries. He studied at the Paris Conservatory. He also worked in the publishing business.

Career[edit]

His talent formed under the direction of his father and in the Paris Conservatory under the violinist Massart, but after a short, brilliant career, he abandoned it suffering under a nerve problem, and settled in Dresden as a music retailer in 1875, where he still occasionally composed and performed on the violin. Then, from 1884 until his death, he lived as a co-owner of the company R. & Erler Berlin.
