Gershwin, Copland: Music for Brass Septet 7

This group play with such finesse…Exceptional.
The Arts Desk

In this seventh volume of Music for Brass Septet, Septura survey two of America’s greatest and most representative composers.

Gershwin’s An American in Paris charts a visitor’s stroll around the French capital, absorbing the city’s atmosphere and charm, whereas the synergy of classical form and jazz animates Gershwin’s unique Preludes. Copland’s Quiet City depicts a contrasting and more understated cityscape, while the suite from the ballet Appalachian Spring displays Septura’s luminous virtuosity.
