Chaconne Brass was formed in 1984 and has established a reputation as one of Britain's most versatile ensembles. Its repertoire spans from Praetorius to Steve Reich, from Gershwin to Miles Davis, from acoustic to electro-acoustic and from Brass to Beyond...
Chaconne Brass has an ever-growing list of over 50 works written for the group, a large part of which has been recorded. In addition to extensive touring with Chaconne Brass, members work as guest principals and soloists with some of the top orchestras and ensembles in Britain. Several members are also teachers as well as successful composers and arrangers with a large number of commissions, concerts and broadcasts in Britain and other countries.
A combination of entertainment, creativity and excellence has allowed Chaconne Brass to develop a totally unique style that appeals to audiences of all ages and backgrounds; whether it is a recital at London's South Bank, a radio or TV broadcast, a workshop for college students or a performance for very young school children, Chaconne Brass is always met with overwhelming enthusiasm.
Chaconne has a large and diverse repertoire of music spanning 600 years including many works specially written for the group; these have been commissioned to fulfill Chaconne's aim of pushing forward the musical boundaries as well as of presenting entertaining programmes of the highest musical standards. A typical Chaconne Brass performance will range from medieval to modern, classics to experimental and from the profound to the downright silly. Chaconne Brass has performed to audiences at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Room, Cadogan Hall, St John's, Smith Square and St Martin-in-the-Fields, London, St David's Hall, Cardiff, the Philharmonie in Berlin, BBC Radio 3, Radio 4, BBC1 TV and Classic fM. In November 2009 Chaconne celebrated its 25th Anniversary with a gala concert at London’s Cadogan Hall and the release of a new CD Dancing in the Dark on Deux-Elles (DXL1141), which almost entirely comprises music written especially for Chaconne, including five world première recordings.
