A4 Brass Quartet is comprised of principal players from two of the UK’s top brass bands, Grimethorpe Colliery Band and Foden’s. With “technical virtuosity in abundance” (Brass Band World), these four astonishing musicians come together to perform both lyrical and high-octane works, forming a distinctive and new take on chamber music.

Formed during their time at the Royal Northern College of Music, A4 Brass Quartet were the first brass group to win the coveted Christopher Rowland RNCM Chamber Ensemble of the Year prize, while they were in their first year of study. They were also the Royal Over-Seas League Chamber Music Competition winners in 2018. Recent engagements include the Cerseio Festival (Switzerland), Trakai Fanfare (Lithuania), and Lieksa Brass Week (Finland). They have also performed at Wigmore Hall, Purcell Room, and Bridgewater Hall. Their debut album Mists of the Mountains was released in 2016.

A4 Brass Quartet joined the City Music Foundation Artist Programme in September 2018.
