Spanish Brass was created in 1989 by five Spanish musicians who quickly gained world renown for their performances, educational activities and creative collaborations. Listeners marvel at the dynamic range and rhythmic intensity of this awarding-winning quintet.
The group has spanned the globe, performing eclectic music programs from an elegant repertoire in Hong Kong, Brazil and New York. In 1996, the group won first prize in the prestigious Narbonne (France) International Brass Quintet Competition.
Spanish Brass has also been in the forefront of international music education, giving courses and master classes at music schools and conservatories, and with youth orchestras, across Spain, the United States (including the Eastman School of Music), and many other centers of music worldwide.
