Gabrieli, Casulana, de Lassus and more


Additional Work
The programme for the above concert has changed and will now be as follows:


  • Septura

Bringing together some of London’s leading brass players, the members of the Royal Academy of Music’s Ensemble in Residence hold principal positions in some of the country’s top orchestras. The fate of brass chamber music mirrors that of the female composers of the past. Septura’s counterfactual history redresses both balances: placing the music of two female composers, Barbara Strozzi and Clara Schumann, alongside that of their historically more celebrated male contemporaries; and imagining that these women had written for brass.
