Septura Brass Septet

Sun 25 February

West Road Concert Hall


The brass septet is a brand new invention, and therein lies the root of our compulsion to steal: we have no canon of repertoire, no grand history of great compositions.

And so we’re inventing one. Like musical Robin Hoods we thieve from the richest ensembles to create a counterfactual history — a parallel universe in which, in the world of chamber music, the brass septet rules.

Our four-concert series comes to West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge in 2017-18, and presents our prize pickings: plunder from pianists, string ensembles, chamber orchestras and singers.

Pilfered Piano

The piano’s rich repertoire is tempting for transcribers, and Debussy’s Préludes and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition are certainly no exception. Images inspire a huge range of colours from both composers, and using all of the techniques in Septura’s vast arsenal these are brightly illuminated.

Debussy Préludes
Mussorgsky Pictures at an Exhibition

Cost: £20, £15 concessions, £5 students.
