THE BEST OF BRITISH BRASS
From collieries through to jazz clubs, amongst the hundreds of pit bands at the Royal Albert Hall Proms, through to symphonic concerts and countless chamber spaces, the British Brass tradition runs through our country and culture like spinal fluid. Whilst there are many great orchestras around the world, there's just something about British brass that keeps composers coming back. It is the rare combination of the colliery, jazz, West End and classical traditions that produce this melting pot of rarefied individuals.
