Fine Arts Brass was originally formed in 1980, taking the name of the place of its first rehearsal, the Barber Institute of Fine Arts at Birmingham University. The group’s enduring success is due to its uncanny chameleon-like adaptability to different audience requirements. These can range from educational concerts for primary school children to broadcasts suitable for BBC Radios 2, 3 or 4. With the combination of their unique versatility of sound, eminent humour and passion for the music they play, it is easy to see why they have toured to over sixty countries and performed in just about every music festival in Britain. Their repertoire is as comprehensive as you would expect from such artists, encapsulating all musical genres from the Renaissance and Baroque to the sound worlds of the avant-garde. They also have a penchant for commissioning new works (over fifty to date) and have enjoyed working closely with the composers who have written for them, including Malcolm Arnold, Robin Holloway, Michael Nyman, John Woolrich and Michael Torke. Their discography is no less impressive with a selection of 28 recordings to date. Fine Arts Brass receives financial support from the PRS Foundation and is proud to be associated with Smith-Watkins trumpets and Nimbus Records.
