Septura brings together London's leading players to redefine brass chamber music through the uniquely expressive sound of the brass septet.

Marginalized, neglected, ignored for centuries, and only now coming to the fore. The fate of brass chamber music mirrors that of the female composers of the past. Our counterfactual history redresses both balances: placing the music of two female composers, Maddalena Casulana and Clara Schumann, alongside that of their historically more celebrated male contemporaries; and imagining that these women had written for brass.

By creating a canon of transcriptions, arrangements and new commissions for this brand new classical configuration, Septura aims to re-cast the brass ensemble as a serious artistic medium.
