Septura brings together London’s leading players to redefine brass chamber music through the uniquely expressive sound of the brass septet. In music for voice and piano, Septura explores a great transatlantic relationship between Maurice Ravel and George Gershwin, whom despite their vastly contrasting musical worlds of French impressionism and American jazz, developed a deep mutual respect for each other. Septura will open the concert with Ravel’s Mother Goose, charting a course from Debussy's Preludes and moving on to Gershwin’s Songbook. They will perform Gershwin’s Three Piano Preludes and close with An American in Paris, especially arranged for brass and solo car-horns.
Septura will be playing Debussy's Preludes instead of Faure Melodies as printed earlier.
