Classic minimalism from founding father of the genre Steve Reich – plus plenty more. Edinburgh-born international percussion soloist Colin Currie directs an evening of propulsive rhythm and calming contemplation.
Reich’s luminous Pulse is one of the composer’s most reflective works, while Radio Re-write reworks two iconic songs by rock band Radiohead. Legendary Dutch post-minimalist Louis Andriessen wrote his jazz- and blues-infused concerto Tapdance specifically for Currie in 2013, while Julia Wolfe tackles globalisation in her high-energy Fuel, and Arvo Pärt summons stillness in his meditative Fratres.
DJ Dolphin Boy will provide electronic accompaniment to exciting night of music-making.
