What is your favourite Septura piece to play?
I find Renaissance choral music particularly satisfying to play, however it’s difficult to beat the end of Rachmaninov’s Slava! for sheer excitement (although it is quite tiring!) Click here to listen on Spotify.
What would you do if you weren’t a trumpeter?
I’d have probably attempted to play computer games for a living (only slightly sillier than trying to be a musician) and switched to web design or something similar once I realised it was impossible.
Your favourite Septura moment?
Hearing the first notes played by Septura in our first ever rehearsal, when the brass septet came to life as a classical chamber ensemble.
