Colin awarded RPS Award

Colin has been awarded the RPS Instrumentalist Award for achievement in the UK during 2014.  He was presented with the award at a ceremony in London on 5 May where he also performed a short marimba solo. One of the highlights of 2014 was the Colin Currie Group’s world premiere performance of Reich Quartet at the Southbank Centre: “The
performances, led by Currie, seemed exemplary. Each performance worked like a well-oiled machine, the players appearing to stroll from one instrument to the next. It’s the musical equivalent of a high-wire act; everyone is striving mightily to seem relaxed, but we know disaster is only one slip away.” Daily Telegraph, October 2014
