Septura brings together London’s leading players to redefine brass chamber music through the uniquely expressive sound of the brass septet.
By creating a canon of transcriptions, arrangements and new commissions for this brand new classical configuration, Septura aims to re-cast the brass ensemble as a serious artistic medium.
Septura’s members are the leading players of the new generation of British brass musicians, holding principal positions in the London Symphony, Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic, and BBC Symphony orchestras.
They are making a stop at Denison and will present a free concert on Monday, Feb. 5 at 7:30 pm in Burke Recital Hall. In this concert Septura Brass explores a great transatlantic relationship, charting a course from Debussy’s préludes, through Ravel’s Mother Goose, to his friend Gershwin’s Songbook and iconic An American in Paris, especially arranged for brass and solo car-horns.
