The heroes of the LSO brass section take centre stage in an evening of fanfares, original works and arrangements for ten-piece brass.

The line-up of four trumpets, four trombones, horn and tuba was pioneered by the renowned Philip Jones Brass Ensemble and its successor London Brass, whose ranks included legendary London Symphony Orchestra players such as Denis Wick, Eric Crees, Rod Franks and Maurice Murphy. The London Symphony Orchestra brass section today incorporates the top British players of a new generation, as well as some of the leading orchestral brass players in the world.
