Watch two of the UK’s outstanding brass ensembles side-by-side in a varied programme that showcases a world-premiere arrangement of Britten’s Sea Interludes.
Slide Action and Connaught Brass are two young brass ensembles quickly making a name for themselves. Both former Britten Pears Young Artists, they have performed at some of the world’s most renowned chamber-music festivals and have devised this unique programme especially for Summer at Snape.
They weave together charm-filled arrangements of Boulanger and Schubert alongside bombastic original pieces. We finish with a flourish with Britten’s iconic Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes arranged for the combined forces.
