What is your favourite Septura piece to play?
A tough choice, but it’s always fun to play pieces that take advantage of the trombone’s more light-hearted nature, like Prokofiev’s Scherzo humoristique. Click here to listen on Spotify.

What would you do if you weren’t a trombonist?
I would swap it all in an instant to open the batting for England!

Your favourite Septura moment?
Getting my violin-playing wife to agree that Shostakovich 8th string quartet (her favourite piece) works equally well for brass septet!
