Septura brings together London’s leading players to redefine brass chamber music through the uniquely expressive sound of the brass septet.

By creating a canon of transcriptions, arrangements and new commissions for this brand new classical configuration, Septura aims to re-cast the brass ensemble as a serious artistic medium.

Currently Ensemble in Residence at the Royal Academy of Music, London, the group is recording a series of 10 discs for Naxos Records, each focused on a particular period, genre and set of composers, creating a ‘counter-factual history’ of brass chamber music. The first six discs have received critical acclaim from the likes of Fiona Maddocks (The Observer) and Anna Picard, (BBC Music Magazine).

Weaving this ever-increasing repertoire into captivating live events, Septura is gaining a reputation for engaging audiences with innovative and imaginative programming. Recent and forthcoming highlights include performances all over the world from New Zealand and Japan to the USA.

Septura’s members are the leading players of the new generation of British brass musicians, holding principal positions in the London Symphony, Royal Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, Philharmonia, City of Birmingham Symphony, Basel Symphony and Aurora orchestras.

"I heartily recommend Septura to anyone who likes chamber music, even if he/she is not a brass fan in particular. I have certainly been converted to the unique sound world of the brass septet." Nahoko Gotoh, Bachtrack

"The standard is absolutely higher than brass playing has ever been before." Alison Balsom, BBC Radio 2

"Virtuoso playing: glossy, brilliantly articulated, audaciously coloured, technically flawless *****" Anna Picard, BBC Music Magazine
