Music for Brass Septet

Artist: Septura

SKU: 25431

Catalogue Number: 8573314

Quick Overview

What if four celebrated nineteenth-century composers - Mendelssohn, Schumann, Bruckner and Brahms - had written original works for brass septet? This disc explores that fascinating counterfactual twist, re-imagining choral and organ works by those composers. The arrangements call on the full dynamic and tonal range of the instruments - often extended with a multitude of mutes - to imitate the expressivity of the choir, the power of the organ, and the versatile sonorities of its different registrations and manuals. In dazzling and varied combinations the arrangers and performers together persuade us that this could indeed be original brass chamber music.
