About this Recording

Brass Septet Music, Vol. 6 - ELGAR, E. / FINZI, G. / PARRY, H. / WALTON, W. (Septura)

Septura head homeward, with a recording of British music from the first half of the 20th century—a golden age in England’s otherwise chequered compositional history, and a period in which brass instruments, in the form of the brass band, established their place at the very heart of British musical culture. From the many composers of the period whose music endures we have chosen four of the finest: iconic works by Elgar, Parry, Finzi and Walton, re-imagined for the unique sound of the brass septet.
