The brass septet is a brand new invention, and therein lies the root of Septura’s compulsion to steal: they have no canon of repertoire, so they’re inventing one. Like musical Robin Hoods, in tonight’s concert they combine thefts from the String Quartet and Piano Solo repertoire, Stolen Strings and Pilfered Piano.


Currently Ensemble in Residence at the Royal Academy of Music, this season Septura launched its debut concert series, Kleptomania, at St John’s Smith Square, London and West Road Concert Hall, Cambridge, and is touring Switzerland, Germany and the USA.


Septura’s members are the leading players of the new generation of British brass musicians, holding principal positions in the UK’s major orchestras.


"Virtuoso playing: glossy, brilliantly articulated, audaciously coloured, technically flawless." BBC Music magazine
