One listen will make you instant fans of Septura – an amazing brass septet. The members are principals in the LSO, Philharmonia, RPO and BBCSO and the level of musicianship is sky-high. They bring us ‘An American in Paris’, charting a course from Debussy’s Préludes, through Ravel’s Mother Goose, to his friend Gershwin’s Piano Preludes, Songbook and iconic An American in Paris, especially arranged for brass and solo car-horns!
“The standard is absolutely higher than brass playing has ever been before” Alison Balsom

Septura brings together London’s leading brass 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.
