Biography

Since 2011, the Thalia Ensemble has strived for authentic self-expression and sought to highlight the theatrical, dramatic, expressive and playful aspects of music. Their aim is to create an intimate musical dialogue while at the same time communicating not only among themselves but with their audience.

The core of the ensemble consists of fortepiano, flute, oboe, clarinet, natural horn and bassoon, but can contract or expand from duo to octet or beyond. With this flexibility of instrumentation, the group embraces the full repertoire of chamber music for fortepiano and wind instruments from around 1750 to 1850.

Thalia Ensemble has gradually established a pre-eminence in the field of Classical and early Romantic chamber music. The group has performed extensively in the Netherlands, Belgium, England, Germany, Poland and Portugal, both at the leading Early-Music Festivals and in more intimate venues, including several historic locations.

The Ensemble was named 'Selected Promising Ensemble' in the International Young Artist's Presentation at the 2012 AMUZ in Antwerp, and won first prize in the 2013 York Early Music International Young Artists' Competition at the NCEM.

Linn Records released Thalia Ensemble's first CD, titled 'Antonine Reicha: Wind Quintets', in November 2015.
