Music On A Saturday Morning

This event was part of the 2010 Festival Programme.

The Festival is delighted that Gordon Seith has accepted the invitation to return to his home town to play in the "Music on A Saturday Morning" Series of concerts, which the Festival has programmed for many years. These concerts feature musicians who were broght up in Perth and who have decided to make their careers in music.

Pure Brass is a vibrant, young and well established brass quintet who look to bring top class music making to people of all ages throughout Scotland and further afield. Formed in 2006, the group has quickly become a prominent ensemble within the Scottish chamber music scene. Pure Brass is part of the very prestigious Live Music Now Scheme and has recently been accepted onto the Enterprise Music Scotland Residency Project. A successful year in competitions has seen Pure Brass win the RSAMD Governors Chamber Music Prize, which led to being broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland, the Mary D Adams Prize for Chamber Music and the Norman Cooper Chamber Music Competition at the Aberdeen International Festival. Future plans include a new commission from EMS and tours to Iceland and the Bahamas. Pure Brass has performed in solo recitals throughout Scotland and further abroad. Recent engagements have seen them perform a world premiere of ‘Polish Dances’ by Marek Pasieczny at the “Sounds New” contemporary music festival in Canterbury, recitals at the Aberdeen International and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, and also a very successful lunchtime recital in the RSAMD, which has led to a return concert this season.
