Colin Currie Quartet
Joseph Pereira Mallet Quartet
Xenakis Rebonds B for solo percussion
Stockhausen Vibra – Elufa
Steve Reich Mallet Quartet
Kevin Volans Four Marimbas
Steve Reich Drumming Part 1
Described by The Spectator as ‘the world’s finest and most daring percussionist’, Colin Currie launched his quartet in September 2018. The concert pivots around works by legendary composer Steve Reich, interspersed with music by Reich’s contemporaries, who have been swept along by his influential force. Kevin Volans’ substantial new work, Four Marimbas, features alongside Joseph Pereira’s Quartet for two vibraphones and two marimbas and solo works by Xenakis and Stockhausen, performed by Colin himself.
While percussion can sometimes be seen as mere rhythmic accompaniment, Colin Currie has time and time again proven that this does not always have to be the case. Expect rhythmic acrobatics, seemingly impossible textures and high-octane dynamism from the four musicians.
