"The overall ensemble is nothing less than first class”

International Trumpet Guild.

 

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.

 

The Geneva Brass quintet is an ardent defender of Swiss culture and regularly commissions new original pieces to expand its repertoire. The ensemble is frequently exported internationally: it has notably been invited to the Cervantino Festival (Mexico), SliderAsia (Hong Kong), Jeju International Wind Ensemble Festival (South Korea), Lieksa Brass Week (Finland ), Brassurround (Spain) and Eurocuivres (France).

 

At ease on all terrains, Geneva Brass has performed in the most beautiful concert halls, such as the Victoria Hall in Geneva or the Grand Théâtre in Tianjin, but also with its feet in the water of Lake Geneva, in South African slums and on the Great Wall of China.

 

Created in 2001, the ensemble brings together five fine blades, all holders of a master's degree from the Haute École de Musique de Genève. It has organized over 10 editions, from 2010 to 2020, the Geneva Brass Festival, an internationally renowned event, and has been offering a season of concerts in Greater Geneva since 2021. Geneva Brass has created shows for children such as “Une histoire de pipes” or “À pleins tubes!” and recorded several discs in his image: eclectic.
