Onyx Brass

Fanfares Recording Project

April 6th and 7th sees the first of our two studio projects for 2017. Fanfares is a recording that will bring together 14 British Composers of the 20th Century, 46 different fanfares, John Wilson, Onyx Brass and a few friends. Including many premiere recordings we have been reconstructing a lot from manuscripts that we’ve found after searching archives and libraries. Works by Arnold, Bliss, Bax, Howells, Lutyens and Imogen Holst alongside others will feature. It’s being recorded by Chandos Records and at St Jude’s Church in London, suitably far enough away from the general population because things are going to be loud as it’s the largest brass ensemble we will have ever expanded to.
