Very special release showcasing Colin Currie, Britain's, and probably the world's foremost percussionist, in a superb new album of new works composed especially for him by leading composer Dave Maric and featuring world-renowned classical trumpeter non pareil Håkan Hardenberger.
This album works on many levels and varied sound worlds, combining live and sampled percussion, the whole range of tuned and untuned percussion, and with instruments that complement especially well, including Hardenberger’s trumpet and flugelhorn, the organ of Westminster Abbey and Maric on piano.
Colin Currie has many pieces written for him including by Michael Nyman, Thea Musgrave and Michael Torke. His first album was released on EMI and he has since recorded Torke and Macmillan's Veni, Veni, Emmanuel for Naxos with great success. Trilogy is Colin’s party piece, which he plays live more than any other work and always brings the house down.
Dave Maric has written for and collaborated on disc with the Labeques and Viktoria Mullova and has been writing for Currie since 2000.
