The Quatuor Anches Hantées is an acclaimed French ensemble, the first clarinet quartet prizewinner of the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris and laureate of the Fondation Banque Populaire. This formation, out of the ordinary by nature, earned its prestige before various audiences and can be presented as the leading group of its kind in France.
Since 2001, Elise Marre, Nicolas Châtelain, Romain Millaud and François Pascal are paving the way by making a large repertoire with transcriptions of emblematic scores, revisiting with panache works for piano, string quartets or symphonic pieces... The group is also commissioning works to young composers such as Philippe Hersant, Richard Dubugnon , Guillaume Connesson or Camille Pépin.
Creative, versatile and well-known for a lively sense of humour, the four musicians of the Quatuor Anches Hantées reflect the best of the French touch classical music.
