Ferdinand Ries (CD cpo) swissmusic

The repertoire of Zurich Chamber Orchestra ranges from early Baroque to contemporary times. Thanks to Howard Griffith's experience and working with reputed guest conductors, the ZCO has acquired an outstanding reputation in the field of 'ancient music'. Focussing in particular on the Viennese masters and their disciples, the ZCO is heard at its best in superlative recordings of Haydn's Creation, Mozart and Ferdinand Ries symphonies and works by Kozeluch, Cherubini and Beethoven.
