Septura at the theatre: 2 months to go

Septura takes a trip to the theatre, and back to the 17th Century, in Volume 2 of our brass chamber music series for Naxos.

There are just 2 months to go until the release of this collection of four contrasting works by Rameau, Blow, Purcell and Handel.

Here’s another sneak-peak video, this time an aria from Handel‘s opera Rinaldo. Operatic arias give us a chance to showcase some of our players as soloists, and this one, Sibilar gli angui, features our virtuoso trombonist Matthew Gee, as he brings to life the role of the war-mongering King of Jerusalem, Argante.

Find out more about our second Naxos recording on our Recordings page. And if you missed the first video, the overture to Rameau‘s opera Dardanus, watch it on our Videos page.
