Entitled "L'infortune" by the composer, the Sonata in F min. Op.26, was written at a time when Ries found himself living in desperate straits in Paris and it is thought to be self-referential. Rejected by the French army, the public and poverty stricken, the work is redolent with references to Beethoven's Pathetique sonata; a composer whom Ries both revered and had a long - if stormy - friendship.
