Septura aims to redefine the brass ensemble as a serious artistic medium by creating a canon of classical art-music for brass septet, through transcriptions, arrangements and commissions. Currently ensemble-in-residence at the Royal Academy of Music in London, the group is recording a series of discs for Naxos, each of which explores a different period and genre of classical music. The groupʼs members are the leading players of the new generation of British brass musicians, holding principal positions in the London Symphony, Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, City of Birmingham Symphony, Scottish Opera and Aurora orchestras. The group shares a passion for live performance, and believes in the idea of the concert as a real event, drawing people into its (perhaps unfamiliar) ever-increasing repertoire with imaginative and interesting programming, built around strong concepts and themes, and presented in a captivating manner. Septura is represented worldwide by Percius.
