An enchanting evening of chamber music played by the soloist of the leading orchestras of France. An event not to be missed!
The French Wind Quintet consists of
Philippe Bernold, flute (Professor at CNSM de Paris)
Olivier Doise, oboe (Soloist of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio-France)
Patrick Messina, clarinet (Soloist of the Orchestre National de France)
Julien Hardy, bassoon (Soloist of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio-France)
Hervé Joulain, horn (Soloist of the Orchestre National de France)
The French Wind Quintet is born one year ago with a project initiated by the pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet. The idea was to give the chance to a forgotten but nevertheless brilliant music score from the composer Alberic Magnard: the quintet for winds and piano.
Around this piece, has developed naturally a repertoire for winds specially with French composers (Ibert, Ravel, Taffanel, Françaix, Poulenc) which made it obvious for some of the most exceptional French musicians to show the world the great French Wind School.
The first concerts came up very quickly, in Lille, Paris (Théâtre de Bouffes du Nord), Venice (Palazzetto Bru-Zane) and have been successful. And the next dates this year will be in Würzburg (Germany) and Domaine Forget (Québec).
Members of the Quintet are the most remarkable and brilliant French instrumentalists. Every one of them has been the First Prize winner in Paris Music Academy, and they all have learned from Maestros such as Rampal, Pierlot, Portal, Audin or Barboteu. They are currently soloists from the Orchestre National de France (Patrick Messinca, clarinet & Hervé Joulain, horn) from the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (Olivier Doise, oboe & Julien Hardy, bassoon) or Teacher from Paris Music Academy (Philippe Bernold, precisely by succeeding to JP Rampal).
