Having celebrated its 25th anniversary in the 2017-18 season, Onyx Brass continues to be the leading light in establishing the brass quintet as a medium for serious chamber music, presenting it in the entertaining and articulate style that has become the group’s trademark. BBC Music Magazine described the group as ‘easily the classiest brass ensemble in Britain’, and Gramophone hailed ‘some of the most thrilling chamber brass-playing of its kind’.
