Septura brings together the very best brass players in the UK – between them holding principal positions in the Royal Philharmonic, London Symphony, BBC Symphony and Philharmonia orchestras. With their unparalleled skill and virtuosity the ensemble has forged a chamber group described as “dazzlingly polished” (BBC Music Magazine), and now firmly established as one of the best in the world.
