'These are infectious works, intended not to provoke but simply to delight, and in these elegantly shaped performances they do just that.' Gramophone

'...they respond to Reicha's easy-going charm with skill.' The Observer

 

Thalia Ensemble, whose prize-winning programme included works by Antoine Reicha, was praised by the jury for its beautiful ensemble sound, as well as the ensemble’s lively communication. The competition is renowned for launching the careers of many notable ensembles, such as Palladian Ensemble, Profeti della Quinta and Ensemble Meridiana.

Premiered in Paris in the early nineteenth century these works were an overnight sensation, recognized across Europe as the pinnacle of their genre. More than any other composer who wrote for winds, Reicha produced works that were hailed as worthy counterparts to the string quartet. An experienced flautist, Reicha was able to craft quintets that successfully integrated each wind instrument, employing its unique character and technical anomalies to full effect. As well as taking influence from his close acquaintances Haydn and Beethoven, Reicha’s melodic style is Mozartian in flavour, spiced with subtle chromatic tinges and quirky syncopations.

In addition to the quintets Reicha’s Adagio ‘pour le cor anglais’ is a fine addition to the programme.

Crescendo
4 Stars
« Comme souvent dans les interprétations « historiques », c'est l'indépendance des lignes qui est exploitée plutôt qu'une parfaite fusion des timbres. Mais si chaque musicien est à son tour soliste, les équilibres sont parfaitement réglés et les mélodies ressortent sans effort. Leur verve défend donc joyeusement cette musique sans prétention qu'on écoute avec plaisir. »

'Their performances, positively Baroque in their rhythmic bounce, have the beauty and intricacy of a music box - no gesture wasted, utterly charming to a fault.'

'Thalia Ensemble imbued the music with considerable individuality...perhaps not since Mozart and not until Nielsen did anyone write such accomplished chamber music for winds.'
