Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The young Thalia Ensemble erupted into the public spotlight with their being chosen as winners at the prestigious biennial York Early Music International Young Artists Competition. Their debut release spotlights the compositions of Antoine Reicha. Regarded as a pre-eminent composer for winds, Reicha , a flautist had an uncanny gift of melding the various wind instruments into a rich sonic tapestry in his compositions and the Thalia Ensemble's inspired and dynamic playing proves to be a perfect match with the lively Wind Quintets.

The Guardian, 15th November 2015
These ensemble pieces live on because they are so satisfying to play and such fun to hear...This new recording shows off the recent winners of the York Early Music International Young Artists Competition, an Amsterdam period-instrument ensemble...they respond to Reicha's easy-going charm with skill.
