She is joined by Kahane and LACO artists Andrew Shulman, cello, and Patricia Mabee, harpsichord. Stanislav also moderates a post-concert Q&A.Stanislav, applauded for her "sure technique and musical intelligence" (Calgary Herald) and "brilliant phrasing, uncannily pointed rhythm and pure intonation" (Huffington Post), has appeared at the Library of Congress, Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall's Weill Recital Hall and Wigmore Hall with such artists as Jean-Yves Thibaudet, the Miró Quartet and Jon Kimura Parker. She has premiered Gunther Schuller's Horn Quintet and Louis Andriessen's The City of Dis and is featured on a soon-to-be released a CD in collaboration with pianist Hung-Kuan Chen.
