Thies Consort performs a wide range of works of varying
instrumentation and size, thus allowing for innovative
and unique programming with musical continuity based
on a style, composer, or other concept.
When the Consort made its debut 5 years ago for the South Bay Chamber Music series, founder and pianist, Sidney Stafford remarked afterwards, “I think this is the best concert our organization has ever presented in the past 46 years.” That first program centered around the great French composers and featured Ravel's monumental Trio in A minor, and Franck's Piano Quintet. The following year, the Consort presented music from the former Soviet Republics, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Estonia, and Georgia, entitled Beyond Russia. And in 2010, the Thies Consort celebrated the life of Robert Schumann and did a program combining his chamber music with his celebrated art songs.
