Chiltern Arts supports talented emerging ensembles by offering them a platform in its innovative and exciting Take Note concert series.
The outstanding young players of A4 Brass, the second of the 2018 Take Note ensembles, bring their trademark virtuosity and wit to a resounding programme, with celebrated works by Percy Grainger and Anton Bruckner.
With arrangements by all four members, this exceptional group are constantly exploring new possibilities and colours for brass ensemble, and their lively and informal approach means the audience will be entertained every step of the way.
About the Artists
A4 Brass Quartet is based at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester (studying as an ensemble for the International Artist Diploma in Chamber Music) and is comprised of principal players from some of the UK’s leading brass bands, including the world-famous Grimethorpe Colliery and Foden’s bands.
The quartet perform concerts and masterclasses all over the UK and abroad, and 2015 saw the first mainland European excursion for A4 Brass as they performed in the Trakai Fanfare Week in Lithuania. In February 2017, they toured the Channel Islands, performing in Jersey, Alderney and Guernsey and in the same month were selected for the Tillett Trust Young Artists’ Platform. A4 also were finalists in the 2017 Royal Over-Seas League Chamber Music competition, receiving the Elias Fawcett Award for Outstanding Ensemble.
