Solus Trumpet Ensemble
Formed by Matilda Lloyd, international trumpet soloist, the Solus Trumpet Ensemble features UK’s leading young professional trumpeters, who regularly
perform with top orchestras and chamber ensembles including the London Symphony Orchestra, Philharmonia Orchestra, Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester and European Union Youth Orchestra. Solus have performed in venues throughout the UK, including at Snape Maltings in December 2020 for their ‘Christmas at Snape Maltings series’ and at the Barnes Festival, with the Festival Chairman commenting that the audience were “fascinated by the varied programme you performed and the quality of music which you gave us.” Throughout the pandemic, Solus have met up to rehearse and put on a series of pop-up outdoor concerts throughout the Southeast. As well as performing a selection of classic works for trumpet ensemble by revered composers of brass music, such as Gabrieli, Tomasi and Brandt, the ensemble is breaking new ground with exciting new arrangements. Our in-house arranger William Foster has arranged multiple works, including Ravel’s monumental Sonatine for piano, Fauré’s Pavane and motets by Luca Maurenzio.
