Symphony No. 5 (Ries)
Ferdinand Ries wrote the Symphony No. 5 in D minor, Opus 112, in London in 1813. It was the second symphony Ries wrote. It was first performed at a Philharmonic Society concert on 14 February 1814. In 1823, Breitkopf & Härtel published the work together with piano solo, piano duet and chamber arrangements.
- Larghetto con moto quasi andante
- Allegro assai
Inspired by Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Ries's Fifth uses the rhythm of Beethoven's famous "Fate" motif with different pitches. The piece has been recorded by the Zurich Chamber Orchestra conducted by Howard Griffiths on the Classic Produktion Osnabrück label.
