Since its creation, MURCIA BRASS has been interested in the performance and dissemination of the most varied musical repertoire, working with authors from all periods and styles, from the Renaissance to the present day, and performing adaptations and original works for brass quintet.
When interpreting different musical styles, especially Renaissance and Baroque, it is of vital importance to achieve a quality interpretation and, of course, as faithful as possible to the music of the time. For this reason, MURCIA BRASS regularly receives classes from the prestigious chamber music specialist and member of the famous brass quintet “Vienna Brass”, Rudi Korp.

Of course, original contemporary works for brass quintet and by famous national composers can also be seen in the repertoire; thus helping to enhance the music here, our music.
The repertoire selected by MURCIA BRASS is one of the most careful elements in each of its performances and it always plays a key role in each of them. If we add a fantastic staging to all this, the result is unbeatable: magnificent professionals on stage, a select repertoire and a quality interpretation will make this event an unforgettable concert that will please the general public, and will surely change the concept of many on chamber music conceived for brass instruments.
