In this seventh volume of Music for Brass Septet, Septura survey two of America's greatest and most representative composers. Gershwin's An American in Paris charts a visitor's stroll around the French capital, absorbing the city's atmosphere and charm, whereas the synergy of classical form and jazz animates Gershwin's unique Preludes. Copland's Quiet City depicts a contrasting and more understated cityscape, while the suite from the ballet Appalachian Spring displays Septura's luminous virtuosity.
