Info

Pavel Stanék was born in 1927 in Prague. He finished his studies at the conservatory there, in 1950, and from this year up to 1954 he was conductor of the Folk Ensemble. During his military service he conducted the Central Band of the Ministery of the Interior and was their director and artistic leader almost for almost six years. From 1961 to 1963 he was conductor of the light opera theatre "Na Fidlovacce" and in 1963 he was appointed as director of the Ostrava Radio Orchestra, until 1990. During this period and after he was often invited as guest conductor. As a composer, Pavel Stanék influenced the development of wind music by his extraordinary compositions. He was often inspired by folk music of his homeland.

It was Spanish folk music that inspired Pavel Stanék to arrange "Kastagnetten" (Castanets) by Karel Tesar. Castanets are percussion instruments mainly known from Spanish dance music. The instrument consists of a pair of wooden concave shells joined on one edge by a string that is hooked over the thumb and the other fingers are bent over to support the two shells and click them together. So you can use this specifically sounding instrument to play very fast ryhthms. Pavel Stanék composed a paso doble to honor the castanets, and of course they also play the lead.
