Septura to visit RWCMD

On October 9th Septura will be paying a visit to the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama for a lunchtime recital.

We’ll be playing How are the mighty fall’n, a secular remembrance programme for the 100th anniversary of the First World War. Inspired by the strong battlefield associations of brass instruments, our focus is the mortal aspect of armed conflict, with music by Brahms, Handel and Shostakovich.

We’ll finish with our most ambitious arrangement to date – Shostakovich’s iconic 8th string quartet.
