About this Recording

Brass Septet Music, Vol. 2 - HANDEL, G.F. / PURCELL, H. / RAMEAU, J.-P. / BLOW, J. (Septura)

This second volume of Septura’s brass chamber music series takes us back to the 17th century and the music of Baroque opera, in four contrasting works by Rameau, Blow, Purcell and Handel. The astounding variety in content, colour and character of the originals demands especially inventive arrangements, and these pieces are vividly brought to life by incorporating stylistic elements from ‘period performance’. The exhilarating result is a stunningly virtuosic set of new Baroque works for brass. Volume 1 is available on Naxos 8.573314.
