Carnyx Brass Trio was established in 2007 and gave their debut performance in a live performance from Glasgow Green as part of the BBC Proms in the Park, watched by a live audience of over 3,000 and broadcast nationally and internationally. The artistic policy of the ensemble is both to interpret the existing repertoire for brass trio and to expand it by commissioning new works: their debut performance featured a trio commissioned by the BBC from John Kenny for trumpet, horn, and the 2000 year old Celtic war horn called a carnyx from which the group takes its name.

The performers:
Paul Archibald (trumpet)
Etienne Cutajar (horn)
John Kenny ((trombone)

Etienne Cutajar:
Born in 1983, Etienne Cutajar is a native of Malta and started playing the horn at the age of ten under the tuition of Paul Borg. Etienne was appointed 3rd Horn of then the National Orchestra of Malta at the age of 18; he resigned the post after two years and went on to pursue a two-year postgraduate course at the Royal Academy of Music in London with Richard Watkins and Michael Thompson on a full scholarship from the ABRSM.

For two consecutive years Etienne was first horn of the European Union Youth Orchestra with Bernard Haitink conducting. He has appeared as guest principal horn with BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Philharmonia Orchestra, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, London Sinfonietta and London Brass. Since 2006, Etienne has been 3rd horn of the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.

John Kenny:
John Kenny has performed and broadcast in over 50 nations. He is internationally acclaimed for his interpretation of contemporary music, but also works with jazz and early music, frequently presenting his own compositions. He is particularly active in collaborations with dance and theatre: in 1983 he began his long collaboration with TNT Theatre and playwright Paul Stebbings, performing, composing and directing the music for productions which continue to tour worldwide. His past commissions have included the London Contemporary Dance Theatre, Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Edinburgh Contemporary Arts Trust, St. Magnus Festival and BBC Proms in The Park. John Kenny is a professor at both the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and The Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. Since the early 1990ís he has also become increasingly involved with musical archaeology, and in 1993 he became the first person for 2000 years to play the great Celtic war horn known as the carnyx. He now lectures and performs on the instrument.
