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.

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

2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts.
