“Steve Reich is a musical colossus. Of ­immeasurable ­influence on music’s ­development for over six ­decades, his output ­inspires, ­challenges, and above all captivates. This group ­celebrates all that Reich has achieved: his legacy to music of such incredible width and unequalled originality. We salute and cherish him, and relish bringing it all to life in concert.” Colin Currie

Led by Colin Currie, the hand-picked group was formed in 2006 for a performance of Drumming at the BBC Proms to celebrate the 70th birthday of Steve Reich. In the subsequent decade, the group have performed Drumming around the world. They have expanded their repertoire to include many of Reich’s most popular works and released a recording of ­Drumming on Colin Currie Records which was praised for its “sheer physicality and visceral intensity” by The Guardian and called “thunderously exciting” by The Times.

The Colin Currie Group has appeared in concert at major halls and festivals including the Concertgebouw, ­Elbphilharmonie, Southbank Centre, Paris Cité de la Musique, Cologne ­Philharmonie, Glasgow Minimal Festival, and Macau Festival. ... read full bio
