Lamb The Brazen Roar

Hear the world premiere of The Brazen Roar, composed by Siobhan Lamb and commissioned by Hounslow Music Service to celebrate Kempton Steam Museum. The piece explores man’s relationship with power, choices and change, using verses from an epic poem by 18th-century doctor and thinker Erasmus Darwin.

Young musicians from Hounslow Music Service, Hounslow Youth Choir and a school choir are joined by players from the Philharmonia Orchestra, and trumpet soloist Gerard Presencer. 

The Brazen Roar is accompanied by an animated film, created by pupils from Bolder Academy, supported by Chocolate Films.

The Brazen Roar has been made possible thanks to grants from Arts Council England, London Music Fund and the Danish Composers Guild.
