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.

Pavel Stanék wrote about »Waiting for the Sun« and how he found the title for this piece:
"What do you expect after such an unharmonious beginning? Something easy-going, something beautiful? Something probably like a bright sunrise."
Dramatic passages, abrupt changes of moods, complex rhythms and harmonies are important elements of this fascinating composition.

Songs from the East End

MVSR2019

The four-part suite Songs from the East End (1998), is inspired by Moravian folk songs. In the first two movements, Stanèk more or less sticks to the strophic pattern of the songs, but the third and fourth are fantasies on folk songs, with rich ...
