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.

Festival Futures – Arts make life better

Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for 250 years. Through our May festival and our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

This year we launch a giving campaign, Festival Futures, to help ensure we continue this work for future generations.

2022’s campaign focuses on ‘Tomorrow’s World’ – the participants, audiences and artists of the future. We aim to raise £20,000 towards our Take Part: Schools programme and towards a range of programming at 2022’s Festival that provides participation and showcase opportunities for young people and early-career artists.  We believe that participation in the arts can increase confidence, creativity and academic results and that by creating performance and commissioning opportunities for the next generation of artists, we are ensuring the future of Norfolk & Norwich Festival. We need your support.
