L'ensemble de cuivres Philip Jones ou London Brass (The Philip Jones Brass Ensemble en anglais) a été fondé par le trompettiste anglais Philip Mark Jones en 1951.

Histoire[modifier | modifier le code]

Réunissant les meilleures solistes de la scène musicale anglaise, il a très vite développé la musique pour cuivre. De la musique de la Renaissance à la musique d'aujourd'hui, l'ensemble a créé bon nombres d'arrangements ou de créations. Une bonne partie de ces pièces ont été éditées chez Chester Music, dans la collection « Just Brass ».

Des compositeurs tels que: Malcolm Arnold, Toru Takemitsu, André Previn, Witold Lutosławski, Michael Berkeley, Jim Parker, Gordon Langford, Einojuhani Rautavaara, Zsolt Durko, Elgar Howarth, Richard Rodney Bennett, Stephen Dodgson, Harrison Birtwistle, Léonard Salzedo, Raymond Prémru et encore beaucoup d'autres, ont composé des œuvres spécialement pour l'ensemble.

Le Philip Jones Brass Ensemble a joué dans plus de 30 pays, notamment les États-Unis, l'Italie, la France, la Suisse, l'Égypte, le Brésil, le Japon, la Suède, le Portugal, la Finlande... et a réalisé l'enregistrement de plus de 50 disques.

Depuis la mort de son fondateur en 2000, il continue sa route sous son nouveau nom, London Brass.
