Septura

February 16, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

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 recast the brass ensemble as a serious artistic medium. Currently Ensemble in Residence at the Royal Academy of Music, London, the group is recording a series of 10 discs for Naxos Records, each focused on a particular period, genre and set of composers, creating a “counter-factual history” of brass chamber music.

The concert is a selection in the John I. and Elizabeth E. Patches Chamber Music Series. A reception for patrons and artists will follow.
