- Double CD Aurèle Nicolet - label Premiers HorizonsThe flute world lost on January 29, 2016, one of its most important representatives in music history. It goes without saying that Aurèle Nicolet was an exceptional musician and virtuoso, but more than that, he was also a tremendous artist because of his artistic philosophy, and the importance he always gave to the place Art and its evolution in our society.
Many of today’s greatest flute players took lessons from him and recognize his crucial influence, not olny for themselves but for the whole musical world: his superb career did much for the popular success of the flute, his implication in contemporary music was a decisive one, his culture and deep thinking inspired generations of musicians – whether flutists or not.
