About us

KamBrass Quintet was born in Barcelona in 2017. The curiosity and the passion for chamber music made the five young musicians decide to create a brass quintet. KamBrass is made up of Guillem Cardona, Joan Pàmies (trumpets), Maria Servera (horn), Xavier Gil (trombone) and Oriol Reverter (tuba).

They started their studies at the Catalonia College of Music (ESMUC) with the professor Pablo Manuel Fernández. They also have received lessons from Albert Gumí, Lluís Vidal, Mireia Farrés, Daniel Perpiñan, Vicente López, Luís González, Antonio Lagares and Thierry Caens, as well as from the members of the famous quintet Spanish Brass.

After three years of their formation, they have received some prizes of several well-known competitions around the world. In 2020, they won the 2nd Prize of the Orpheus Swiss Chamber Music Competition and the Gold Star Prize in Emergent and Professional chamber music categories of the Music and Stars Awards Competition. In 2021, they were awarded with the 3rd Prize in the Philip Jones Brass Competition in Luzern, the American Brass Quintet Prize in the Fischoff Competition (USA) and the 3rd Prize in the Cambra Romànica Competition in Andorra. Also they were finalists in the 9th Anton García Abril Competition in Baza, Granada.

KamBrass have performed concerts over Catalonia, Switzerland and the Balearic Islands. In 2019, they were selected to perform in the Barcelona Obertura Spring Festival and also in the Young Musicians Festival in Ametlla del Vallès. In 2021 KamBrass offered concerts in concert halls like Luzerner Orchestarhaus and in September of the same year, they will make their debut at the Festival Musikdorf Ernen and in the Swiss Chamber Music Festival in Adelboden, performing for the first time two new commissioned compositions. 

Currently, they are specializing in a Chamber Music Master at the Hochschule Luzern in Switzerland with the professors Olivier Darbellay, Immanuel Richter, Martin Schippers, Lukas Christinat and Thomas Rüedi.
