The Nordic Brass Ensemble, NBE, was founded in 1993. The ensemble has, since its beginning, focused on developing its own musical ideas and concepts of sound. NBE has a vast repertoire, spanning from early music through the music history to our own time. Most of the repertoire is arranged exclusively for the ensemble. NBE performs regularly in the Nordic countries, and has in recent years also toured Germany, Italy, Austria, Spain and South America.
The NBE consists of musicians from the professional symphony orchestras in Scandinavia, including the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, Oslo Philharmonic, Gothenburg Symphony, Norwegian National Opera Orchestra, Trondheim Symphony and Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra.
