Septura Brass Septet

We are Septura, and we are musical kleptomaniacs.

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 4-concert debut London series presents our prize pickings: plunder from pianists, string ensembles, chamber orchestras and singers.

In music for voice and piano, Septura explore a great transatlantic relationship, charting a course from Fauré’s mélodies, through Ravel’s Mother Goose, to his friend Gershwin’s Songbook and iconic An American in Paris, especially arranged for brass and solo car-horns.
