Brass United is an ensemble consisting of five brass players from different backgrounds and countries who got to know each other in various occasions and became good friends over thepast decades:
Van Hasselt and Alexandre Baty, trumpet
Jasper de Waal, french horn
Jörgen van Rijen, trombone
Stéphane Labeyrie, tuba.
After discovering their initial joy of making music together, they felt united in their desire to promote their instruments and create a bigger audience for great brass music. With these five musicians as the core of Brass United they are flexible to take part in different projects in various settings. It is their wish to bring great musicians and music together in their love for chamber music.
