Spanish Brass has been awarded the 2020 National Music Prize from Spain’s Ministry of Culture. This award, Spain’s highest musical honor, recognizes the Valencian ensemble’s trajectory for more than three decades
The jury awarded Spanish Brass this prize to recognize “the totality of its extensive career over more than 30 years as one of the most versatile and relevant brass quintets on the national and international scene. They also highlighted “the numerous collaborations that demonstrate the quintet’s commitment to contemporary Spanish culture” and “their vocation as educators, which has kept them in the forefront of bringing music to the younger generation.”
Spanish Brass would like to thank the jury of the Prize and the Spain’s Ministry of Culture for having awarded the group this distinction, and they congratulate Raquel García Tomás, who received the prize for composition, and Chano Domínguez, who received the price for new musics.
