Stéphanie Carne


She obtained her premiers prix in clarinet and chamber music at the Paris Conservatoire in 1991 in Michel Arrignon’s class. She then did a graduate programme in chamber music there, benefiting from classes with Maurice Bourgue and David Walter, and master classes with the Quintette Moraguès. Working with several groups (Trio Don Giovanni, Octuor Da Ponte, Quintette L), she has participated in, amongst others, the festivals of Saint-Lizier, Mantes, Périgord Noir, the Côte d’Amour, Ris-Orangis, and the Sommarnattes Toner in Sweden…

She is a founding member of the Ensemble Latitudes with which she recorded Musique française au féminin for Triton, a disc devoted to women composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. Hailed by the critics, the disc was awarded five Diapasons (Diapason) and ‘Coup de Coeur’ of the Revue du son and Resmusica. For this disc, Florentine Mulsant entrusted her with the first performance of the quartet In Jubilo, Op.22 then the first performance of the Wind Quintet, Op.30 for the ‘Musiques Démesurées’ festival in 2005, and, in 2014, the premiere of Empreintes, Op.46 for solo clarinet, at Salle Adyar in Paris.

For the clarinettist, music is also a fantastic vector for going towards other arts like photography (concert around the Zen Garden at the Maison du Japon in Paris, in collaboration with the photographer Sylvie Allouche) or energetic arts such as Qi Gong and Tai Ji Quan, which come largely to deepen life and the practice of music. Holder of a degree in clarinet, Stéphanie Carne is also a professor at the conservatories of the 7th and 9th arrondissements in Paris.
