The Nordic Brass Ensemble is a virtuoso group made up of leading brass players from symphony orchestras and wind ensembles in Scandinavia. The ensemble was founded in 1993 by a group of brass musicians who shared a strong desire to make chamber music together, and to maintain the traditions of brass music in the Nordic countries. From the start, the ensemble has focused on developing its own musical ideas and concepts of sound. The Nordic Brass Ensemble has a vast repertoire, spanning from Renaissance music to music of our own time, and a lot of the Renaissance repertoire is arranged by members of the ensemble. Nordic Brass Ensemble tours the Nordic countries, Europe, and has even been in Bolivia.
