TWENTIETH BIRTHDAY CD PACKAGE
On the occasion of their 20th anniversary, the Ensemble Stanislas presents a collection of three discs containing a selection of the best recordings of their concerts during the last ten years in the Salle Poirel in Nancy.
Contrary to the other recordings of the Ensemble Stanislas, which have a general tendency for little known works of the 20th century, this collection is turned towards a classical and romantic repertoire, without forgetting some rarer works, thus giving an accurate reflection of the programmes presented during the last few years by the Ensemble Stanislas in the magnificent setting of the Salle Poirel.
Each disc in the box presents different formations of the Ensemble Stanislas: the string quartet, the combination of strings and wind instruments, the wind quintet, as well as the contributions of invited soloists who have influenced the group over the years, such as Alexis Galpérine, Christian Ivaldi and Christophe Coin.
This box is produced with special care, containing a booklet of over 50 pages which presents the rich career of the Ensemble Stanislas since 1984, extensive musicology notes on the works and many illustrations.
