Onyx Brass has dominated the international brass chamber music scene for the last eighteen years with its serious yet approachable programmes, playing across Europe, the US, the UK and even for The Queen and previous Prime Ministers. Individually, the members all hold positions in some of the leading UK orchestras and chamber ensembles. Together, they strongly believe in commissioning new music and are delighted that this programme includes a new work by the incredible talent of British composer Cheryl Frances-Hoad. They have previously performed and recorded world premieres of music by the likes of Bob Chilcott, John Tavener, John McCabe and Judith Bingham.

Onyx Brass’s programme takes us on an eclectic tour of the countries and composers who have contributed to our rich history of brass ensemble music over the centuries. It is rooted in the Renaissance but with a touch of the great fugue as well as more modern European composers.

New commission supported by the PRS for Music Foundation and the RVW Trust.

Pre-concert Talk, 6.30pm
