Music For Brass Septet, Vol. 5
Format: COMPACT DISC
Septura turns to one of the most groundbreaking periods of music history: France at the onset of the twentieth century. In this fertile compositional field solo brass instruments flourished, but the chamber music landscape was barren. And so the group re-imagines works by three composers who defined France’s unique musical direction: Faure, Debussy and Ravel. Conjuring the full kaleidoscope of colors possible from seven brass instruments, they trace the origins of Impressionism, from Faure’s masterful melodies through to the iconic piano works of Debussy and Ravel.
