Christmas with Septura
★★★★ ‘A recital so entertaining that the missing words don’t matter.’
– BBC Music Magazine
Brass instruments are almost a Christmas cliché: synonymous with the celebration, but perhaps not with the wealth of great music that it has inspired. Septura set out to rectify this, re-imagining for brass septet the Christmas offerings of the greatest composers of the past 450 years.
Pushing the combinations and colours of the septet to the limits, the result is a virtuosic and varied selection of festive favourites.
