Music of Today: Colin Currie CuratesSouthbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall, SE1 8XX, [Venue Details]
The spotlight is on boundary-pushing percussionist Colin Currie in this free early evening concert presented by the Philharmonia.
Be the first to hear Staggered Nocturne, a new concerto for percussion and orchestra composed with Currie’s extraordinary technique and engaging personality in mind.
It was commissioned by the Philharmonia from award-winning British composer Luke Bedford, acclaimed for his ‘luminous soundworld’ by The Guardian.
Then immerse yourself in French composer Philippe Hurel’s Four Variations, called ‘a virtuosic anticoncerto for percussion and ensemble in which vibraphone [is] gradually submerged in a bright tapestry of sound’ by the New York Times.
