SEPTURA: KLEPTOMANIA – SONG SWAG

Monday 9 July, 7.30pm
West Road Concert Hall

Septura

Huw Morgan, Alan Thomas, Simon Cox trumpets
Matthew Gee, Matthew Knight, Daniel West trombones
Peter Smith tuba

Maurice Ravel Mother Goose
Gabriel Fauré Six Mélodies
George Gershwin Three Preludes
George Gershwin Songbook
George Gershwin An American in Paris

This delightful and highly original programme explores a great transatlantic relationship that charts a course from Fauré’s Mélodies, through Ravel’s Mother Goose, to his friend Gershwin’s Songbook and the iconic An American in Paris, specially arranged for brass and solo car-horns.

The name of the programme – Kleptomania – reflects the fact that the brass septet is a brand new invention. There is no canon of repertoire and no grand history of great compositions, so Septura is inventing one. Like musical Robin Hoods, they steal from the richest ensembles to create a musical parallel universe in which the brass septet rules.
