Revel in the wonder that is music when Cranbrook Music Guild presents Septura Brass Septet on Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2018. The concert program begins at 7:30 p.m. at Christ Church Cranbrook.
Currently “Ensemble in Residence” at the Royal Academy of Music, London, Septura brings together London’s leading players to redefine brass chamber music through the uniquely expressive sound of the brass septet.
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, BBC Symphony, Basel Symphony and Aurora orchestras.
Their recordings have been described as “brilliantly done” (Fiona Maddocks, The Observer), and “brass playing at its most exalted” (Robert Markow, Fanfar e). Anna Picard, from the BBC Music Magazine wrote “This is virtuoso playing: glossy, brilliantly articulated, audaciously coloured, technically flawless.”
