“The world’s finest and most daring percussionist”
— The Spectator
Artist in Association, Southbank Centre, London Artistic Director, Colin Currie Group Artistic Curator, Grafenegg Academy
Colin Currie is as solo and chamber artist at the peak of his powers. Championing new
music at the highest level, he is hailed as being “at the summit of percussion
performance today” (Gramophone). Currie is the soloist of choice for many of today’s
foremost composers and conductors and he performs with the world’s leading
orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw, Royal
Stockholm Philharmonic, London Philharmonic and Minnesota Orchestras.
A dynamic and adventurous soloist, Currie’s commitment to commissioning and
creating new music was recognised in 2015 by the Royal Philharmonic Society who
awarded him the Instrumentalist Award. From his earliest years Currie forged a
pioneering path in creating new music for percussion, winning the Royal Philharmonic
Society Young Artist Award in 2000 and receiving a Borletti-Buitoni Trust Award in
2005. Currie has premiered works by composers such as Steve Reich, Elliott Carter,
Louis Andriessen, HK Gruber, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Sir James MacMillan, Brett
Dean, Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Einojuhani Rautavaara, Helen Grime, Jennifer Higdon,
Kalevi Aho, Andy Akiho, Rolf Wallin, Kurt Schwertsik, Andrew Norman, Julia Wolfe
and Nico Muhly. Looking ahead, in the coming seasons Currie will premiere new
works by Bruno Mantovani, Danny Elfman, and Steve Reich.
In October 2017 Currie launched Colin Currie Records, in conjunction with LSO Live,
as a platform for recording his diverse projects, celebrating the extraordinary
developments for percussion music in recent times. The label's first release was the
Colin Currie Group's debut recording, Steve Reich's Drumming, which was hailed as
"thunderously exciting" (The Times). In October 2018 Currie released the second disc
in this catalogue, The Scene of The Crime, with Håkan Hardenberger, the third
release following in April 2019, Colin Currie & Steve Reich Live at Fondation Louis
Vuitton, once again featuring the Colin Currie Group.
Currie is Artist in Association at London's Southbank Centre, where he was the focus
of a major percussion festival Metal Wood Skin in 2014 and continues to perform there
