Duo Haring/Attema

In 2008 this harp/trombone duo played their debut concert on the International Harp Congress in Amsterdam. They played world premieres by Martijn Padding and Chiel Meijering written especially for them. The combination of these musicians and instruments turned out to be so interesting that they decided to ask more composers to write for them. Since then, many pieces have been written for them and they played concerts all around the world.

Nederlands Blazers Ensemble

Since 2000 Brandt is bass trombonist of the Nederlands Blazers Ensemble. This ensemble plays around 10 projects per year. Every project is unique and brings specially for this project newly written or arranged music. They bring a great diversity of styles. From Gran Partita by Mozart to Greek folk music with Manos Achalinotopoulos and from the premiere of an opera by the Dutch composer Altena to a premiere of an opera by the Italian composer Fransesconi in combination with the world famous Hilliard Quartet. Besides all these programs, the Blazers Ensemble plays every year on the 1st of January their famous New Years concert on National television. As a reaction to the very traditional new years concert in Vienna, the ensemble brings a fast and dynamic program with a focus on young musicians and extraordinary solists.

New Trombone Collective

In the year 2000, 8 trombonists, including Brandt, founded the New Trombone Collective. After their studies in Rotterdam, they missed the weekly ensemble rehearsals and they wanted to inspire more audience and composers with their enthusiasm for the trombone. Since then numerous compositions were written for them, they played concerts all over the world and they started their own two-annual international trombone festival Slide Factory in Rotterdam. In 2011 the 5th edition of this successful festival will take place. Next to the joy of playing with friends, the strength of the ensemble lies in their drive and creativity on stage and in organizing projects.
