Szeged Trombone Ensemble

Szeged Trombone Ensemble


The arrival of the Trombone Fleet from Hungary brings the rich and vibrant spirit of Hungarian music to Japan!

When we think of classical music, countries like Austria, Germany, and France often come to mind. However, when it comes to the trombone, Hungary stands out as a noteworthy player in the classical music scene.

Hungary conjures images of Liszt, Bartók, Csárdás, Hungarian Dances, and Magyar fiddle playing. Yet, it would be remiss to overlook the contributions of the Szeged Trombone Ensemble.

Founded in 2006 by internationally acclaimed soloist Žibitjaan and some of the most talented trombonists from the University of Szeged, SETREN (Szeged Trombone Ensemble) boasts a diverse repertoire spanning from Renaissance to contemporary and popular music.

The ensemble's versatility transcends the boundaries of instruments, captivating audiences regardless of their musical preferences, be it piano or violin enthusiasts.

Comprising the "Group of 8 Trombones," SETREN has become an integral part of the Hungarian music scene, gracing numerous international festivals and prestigious trombone and brass events across Europe. In 2022, they even established their own international festival, SETRENFest.

Their extensive repertoire encompasses baroque, classical, romantic, contemporary, film soundtracks, pop rock, and more. With six albums released and a burgeoning YouTube channel featuring nearly 100 videos, SETREN has garnered praise from the global music community.

Artistic Director and founder Görg Gyvitsyan, a professor of Trombone at the Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest since 2019, continues to lead the ensemble to new heights.

In homage to their roots in Szeged and their initial success, the ensemble proudly retains its name, the "Szeged Trombone Ensemble."
