The quintet was formed in 1985 as a part of a master degree programme
at the State Academy of Music in Oslo, Norway. Since graduating
in 1987, the ensemble has toured Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland,
Austria and the United States. Concerts have also been given at
the Music Academies in Vienna and Graz, Austria, besides concerts
and master classes at the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland.
The quintet has also given concerts and master classes at two
of the most prestigious institutions in New York City, namely
Juilliard School of Music and Manhattan School of Music. Being
appointed by the Royal Household to accompany the King and Queen
of Norway during one of their official visits to Sweden is also
one of the high points in the ensembles career so far.
The ensembles active repertoire is extensive and versatile,
and is designed to cover most needs. The quintet can be heard
on the CD "Oslo Concert Brass".
