Colin Currie (percussion)

Colin Currie is a solo and chamber artist at the peak of his powers, acclaimed for his virtuosity and musical integrity and hailed as being 'at the summit of percussion performance today' (Gramophone). Championing new music at the highest level, Currie is soloist with the world’s leading conductors and orchestras including the New York Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw, Royal Stockholm Philharmonic, London Philharmonic and Minnesota Orchestras.

A dynamic and adventurous soloist, Currie has forged a pioneering path in creating new music for percussion, premiering works by composers including Steve Reich, Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Louis Andriessen, Sir James MacMillan, Nicole Lizée, Elliott Carter, HK Gruber, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Helen Grime, Brett Dean, Einojuhani Rautavaara, Jennifer Higdon, Andrew Norman, Julia Wolfe, Dave Maric, Simon Holt, Bruno Mantovani and Danny Elfman. Currie’s unrivalled commitment to commissioning and creating new music was recognised in 2015 by the Royal Philharmonic Society who awarded him the Instrumentalist Award.

In October 2017 Currie launched Colin Currie Records, in conjunction with LSO Live, as a platform for his diverse projects, celebrating the extraordinary developments for percussion music over the past century. He is Artist in Association at London’s Southbank Centre, and performs widely with his critically acclaimed Colin Currie Group, founded in 2006 and specialising in the music of Steve Reich.
