SPANISH BRASS

Spanish Brass is one of the most dynamic and admired brass groups on the international music scene. They have participated in some of the most prestigious venues and festivals around the world, and also in  such special moments as the gala award ceremony of the Principe de Asturias Prize (1995). They have also recorded the music for the play “La Fundación” by Buero Vallejo for the National Drama Center and the soundtrack for the film “Descongélate” by Félix Sabroso for El Deseo Producers. All told, they have released 20 recordings, including a retrospective double CD and a CD-DVD, in which they demonstrate a multiplicity of styles and moods

As devoted to teaching and outreach as they are to performance, Spanish Brass has founded three international brass festivals: the Spanish Brass Alzira Festival (www.sbalz.com), Brassurround (www.brassurround.com), and Brass&Wines (www.brassandwines.com). These are venues where the most important professionals and teachers meet every year

The members of Spanish Brass currently teach at the Berklee College of Music in Valencia

They are sponsored by the Buffett Group and play B&S trumpets, Hans Hoyer French horns, Courtois trombones, and Melton tubas. Moreover, the group receives support bythe regional Valencia  government and by the Culture Ministry-INAEM.
