A pianist of “unerring, warm-toned refinement, revealing judicious glimmers of power.” (The Los Angeles Times)
We are honored to present Robert Thies, an artist renowned for his consummate musicianship and poetic temperament. He first captured worldwide attention in 1995 when he won the Gold Medal at the Second International Prokofiev Competition in St. Petersburg, Russia. With this victory, Thies became the only American pianist to win first prize in a Russian piano competition since Van Cliburn’s famed triumph in Moscow in 1958.
Thies enjoys a diverse career as an orchestral soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, and recording
artist. He has already performed 40 different concerti with orchestras all over the world, including Russia’s Saint Petersburg Philharmonic, New Zealand’s Auckland Philharmonia,
and the Mexico City Philharmonic.
