Melbourne Chamber Music Society: Septura Brass Septet Concert
Melbourne Chamber Music Society presents…
November 4, 2022
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, Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, Philharmonia, Basel Symphony, and Aurora Orchestras. They have created a canon of transcriptions, arrangements, and new commissions for this brand new classical configuration. The group is recording a series of 10 discs for Naxos records, each focused on a particular period, genre, and set of composers.
Prokofiev: Suite (from “10 Pieces”) Op.12
Shostakovich: String Quartet #8 Op. 110 (arranged for Brass Septet)
Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition
