Artist Profile

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 globe, as well as such signal moments as the gala award ceremony of the Principe de Asturias Prize (1995), and recording the music for the play “La Fundación” by Buero Vallejo for the National Drama Center and the soundrack for the film “Descongélate” by Félix Sabroso for El Deseo Producers. All told, they have released 21 recordings, including a retrospective double CD and two 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 two international brass festivals: the Spanish Brass Alzira Festival (www.sbalz.com) and Brassurround (www.brassurround.com).

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. SBLM is also supported by Culturarts/Música-Generalitat Valenciana and by the Ministerio de Cultura-INAEM.
