Stanislas Gosset

A curious and creative violinist, Stanislas Gosset has been leading a rich career as a chamber musician. He performs on renowned French venues: the Grande Salle of the Phillarmonie de Paris, the Salle Cortot, La Seine Musicale’s Auditorium, the great hall of the Invalides, as well as international venues: Geneva’s Maison de la Radio, BOZAR and Flagey in Bruxelles, Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest, Schoenberg Center in Vienna, Jerusalem University of Arts, Ludwig Festspielhaus in Füssen, Miry Concert Hall in Gand, Paul Klee Zentrum in Bern, etc. He shares the stage with artists such as Noémie Bialobroda, Ophélie Gaillard, Patrick Genet, Philippe Graffin, Marie-Josèphe Jude, Patrick Jüdt, Christian-Pierre Lamarca, Geneviève Laurenceau, Stephan MacLeod, Cédric Pescia, Gabriel Pidoux, Marianna Shirinyan, Miguel da Silva, Manuel Vioque-Judde, etc.

In 2019, he formed the Trio Ernest with pianist Natasha Roque Alsina and cellist Clément Dami. Ensemble in residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel and ProQuartet, the trio performs across Europe on a regular basis and was awarded several international prizes.

Stanislas has also been sharing the stage with pianist Johann Vacher since 2012. The duo stands out for its original projects: live music for silent films (Chaplin, Calmettes, etc.), musical arrangements, concert-shows.

He played first violin in the Quatuor Ernest from 2013 to 2019, with which he won awards such as the Tremplin pour Jeunes Quatuors (“springboard for young quartets”) of the Philarmonie de Paris, the Prix Daisy de Saugy of Geneva’s Haute École de Musique and the Concours Léopold Bellan.

One can also notice his activity in the contemporary music field. Carlo Roque Alsina dedicated his “Trio 2019” to him inter alia, same for Alain Besson’s piece “Ce double de notre être” for violin and piano.

He has appeared on various radio stations – France Inter, France Musique, BBC Radio 3, Espace 2 – and in many festivals – the Festival de l’Orangerie de Sceaux, the Musicales de Colmar, the Festival Ravel, the Matinées Musicales d’Arles, the Festival Gaia, the Festival Musique à la Ferme, Les Cordes en Ballade (France), the Festival Sine Nomine, the Festival Racinotes, the Schubertiades de Sion (Switzerland), the Festival ISA (Austria), etc.

In 2015, as a production and artistic direction enthusiast, he creates the chamber music festival “Les fieffés Musiciens”, in the Cotentin region in Northwestern France. Renowned for the “ingenious audacity” of its programming (La presse de la Manche, October 2020), the festival soon found its place in the rich French musical landscape.

Stanislas studied at the Haute École de Musique de Genève in Marie-Annick Nicolas and Gabor Takacs-Nagy’s classes. Afterwards, he furthered his studies at the Académie Philippe Jaroussky where he was taught by Geneviève Laurenceau. Nowadays, he is an artist in residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel in the chamber music class of Miguel Da Silva, Jean-Claude Vanden Eynden and the Artemis Quartet.

Very involved in knowledge transmission, Stanislas is a violin and chamber music teacher at the Conservatoire de musique d’Annemasse and a tutor in the professional workshops of the Haute École de Musique de Genève.
