TCCA presents Cani and Thies

“That Sunday afternoon I saw one of the best violinists I may see anywhere in the world,” wrote Luke Genilla of The Union newspaper after experiencing a Roberto Cani (Nov. 16, 2006) TCCA performance. “With the forest as a backdrop through the windows behind the stage, it was a rare privilege to be in Grass Valley that afternoon,” The privilege soars to new heights on Sunday when violinist Roberto Cani and pianist Robert Thies take centerstage together.

There is a wealth of amazing repertoire for violin and piano. Sunday you will hear absolute gems performed by two powerhouse musicians. Violinist Roberto Cani and pianist Robert Thies are two favorites who have performed for TCCA several times in the past. Today is the first time they will perform together.

Their program includes gorgeous and haunting works of Mozart, Shostakovich, Faure and Prokofiev. TCCA forum-hostess and pianist Aileen James notes, “The luscious Faure Sonata, a tour de force for both performers, is frequently heard in recitals of either instrument, and the Prokofiev is the perfect grande finale to the program.”

A pre-concert forum will be held at 1:15 p.m. A greet-the-musician and beverage reception will follow the concert.

This performance is underwritten by Rochelle and Robert Lowenthal; Joe and Jeanne Hammel; Bea and Jerry Pressler; Don and Barbara Scoble.
