Drumming with Colin Currie Group and Synergy Vocals
Drumming is a percussion epic! Led by Colin Currie, the hand-picked ensemble was formed in 2006 for a performance of Drumming at the BBC Proms to celebrate the 70th birthday of Steve Reich.
The ensemble specialises in the music of Steve Reich. In Drumming, Reich is deeply motivated by African drumming traditions and you can feel this in every thunderous beat of the hour-long piece.
The stunning musicianship of the Colin Currie Group has performed Drumming around the world. They have expanded their repertoire to include many of Reich’s most popular works, including Music for 18 Musicians, Sextet, Tehillim and Music for Pieces of Wood.
“Muscular and nuanced, punchy and poetic, this is a thrilling must-have” – Classical Ear
“It’s hard to think of a contemporary music group which “owns” one particular masterpiece quite so decisively as the Colin Currie Group owns Drumming…” – The Telegraph
