Like the famous “Swiss army knife”, Geneva Brass is a multi-talented chamber music ensemble. Its warm and brilliant sound lends itself just as well to the chiseled fugue of Bach as to the soft murmur of a ballad by Cosma, or to a traditional melody of the alphorn. They know how to be powerful to give the answer to an organ or a big band, but also full of sweetness to accompany a choir, a pan flute, or even a harp.

Among his biggest successes are the first prize at the International Violin Competition Beethoven’s Hradec with the Dvořák concerto in 2009 and he was the youngest laureate of the Prague Spring International Festival competition in 2010.
