Spanish Brass is one of the most dynamic and admired brass groups on the international music scene. In 2017 the group received the I Bankia Music Talent Award in Spain, for the most influential musical artists. In 2019 they won the Espai Ter Award and two Carles Santos Music Awards.
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, 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.
They have recorded 26 CDs, including a retrospective double CD and two CD- DVD, in which they demonstrate a multiplicity of styles and modes.
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 the Brassurround Festival (www.brassurround.com).
They are sponsored by the Buffett Group and play B&S trumpets, Hans Hoyer French horns, Courtois trombones, and Melton tubas and with new APP Black Binder. The group uses Bags instrument cases. Spanish Brass is also supported by Institut Valencià de Cultura and by the Ministerio de Cultura-INAEM.
