SPANISH BRASS

Spanish Brass, an innovative and technological collaboration.

Formed in 1989, Spanish Brass, and innovative ensemble, quickly became popular for its performances, educational activities and creative collaborations. After they won the First Prize in the 1996 Narbonne (France) International Brass Quintet Competition, the most prestigious event of its kind in the world, trumpeter Bernard Soustrot said, “Of all the First Prize winners of the Narbonne Competition, the Spanish Brass is the best since the competition was founded in 1986.”

Spanish Brass has given hundreds of concerts in the most prestigious events and venues across the globe like the Great American Brass Band Festival, New York Brass Conference, Juilliard School of Music, Ithaca College, Festival de Musique de Radio-France, Granada International Festival, Lucerne Festival, Cheju Summer Festival (Korea), Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival (Germany), National Auditorium (Madrid), Palau de la Música (Barcelona), Kalavrita Festival (Greece), International Horn Society, Merano Brass Festival and Trento Philharmonic (Italy), Barcelona Auditorium, Festival de Inverno de Brasília, and countless others.

(brass quintet), Metàl•lics and Brass Brass Brass (educational concerts), Brassiana (with jazz trio), Make a Brazz Noise Here (a tribute to Frank Zappa), Les Aventures de Monsieur Jules (with pianist Albert Guinovart) and Metalls d’Estil (with singer Pep “Botifarra”). They have recorded 22 CDs, including two DVD-CD.
