The Quintet was founded in 2007 as an integral part of the Croatian Association of Trombone and Tuba players – Busina, with the specific goal of introducing brass chamber music to the audience. It is one of leading brass ensembles in Croatia, having performed more than 30 concerts in the last two years. The members of this international Ensemble come from Croatia, Serbia, Romania and Hungary and are among the most awarded music performers. They are also principal players in their prospective orchestras and work as pedagogues in music schools and academies. The program of the Ensemble is diverse; it ranges from original works for brass quintet to arrangements of popular renaissance, baroque and classical pieces, dixie, blues and jazz music as well as popular movie soundtracks.
Beside performing throughout Croatia (Požega, Vinkovci, Petrinja, Sisak, Zagreb, Zabok, Rovinj, Samobor, Koprivnica, Šibenik, among others), the Ensemble has a strong international exchange and in the last three years it has performed concerts in Greece (Parnassos Hall), Turkey (Ankara), Slovenia (Kazinski Hall of the Slovene Theater), Israel (Jerusalem), Georgia (Tbilisi), United Kingdom (English Brass Academy in Shrewsbury) and Japan (Sagamihara, Yokohama), where they performed the first ever Japanese performance of Eric Ewazen’s Shadowcatcher, a concerto for brass quintet and orchestra. In 2017 they performed the European premiere of the same piece with accompanied by the Vojvodina Symphonic Orchestra in Novi Sad, Serbia.
The Ensemble often performs with the Symphonic Wind Orchestra of the Croatian Armed Forces, and together they have premiered three pieces written specially for brass quintet and wind orchestra. Also, Busina Brass Quintet is an ensemble-in-residence of the Summer Brass Academy Šibenik.
The members of the Ensemble often take part in Master classes held by leading brass soloists around the world like Friedrich, Gabor Boldozky, Stanko Arnold, Laura Vukobratović, Jon Faddis, John Thomas, Bobby Shue, Nikolas Elklund, Mel Culbertson, Jens Bjorn Larssen, Hans Gansch, Ben Van Dijk, Christian Lindberg, Michael Becquet…
