Description: This program contains all of Gregson’s significant works for symphonic brass. He writes in a highly approachable style, but within a challenging contemporary framework, often using ‘traditional’ forms such as sonata, variation, and fugue to encapsulate his ideas. He has a strong vein of lyrical expression and melody running through his music, but it is also often highly-charged, both rhythmically and texturally. London Brass; Rumon Gamba.
