In 1989 five Spanish musicians created Spanish Brass—an innovative project that quickly gained world renown 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 across the globe, in such prestigious events and venues as 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.
With their versatile programming and state-of-the-art staging, SPANISH BRASS has created such shows as 25 years! (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 20 CDs, including the double CD «The Best of Spanish Brass,» and a DVD-CD.
