Announcing Colin Currie Records & the first recording from the Colin Currie Group

Colin Currie, founder of the Colin Currie Group, has announced the launch of his own record label, Colin Currie Records. The label’s first release will be the debut recording of the Colin Currie Group: Steve Reich’s Drumming, out in March 2018.

Distributed by LSO Live and its partners worldwide, Colin Currie Records is a platform for Colin’s diverse projects, celebrating the extraordinary developments for percussion music over the past century. As well as featuring key percussion repertoire, the label will also champion new percussion music by contemporary British composers.

The group’s recording of Drumming was made possible by a crowdfunding campaign earlier this year. Reich enthusiastically endorsed the project, saying “it will be, I am sure, the best recording of Drumming ever made.” Thank you to everyone who contributed, and put March 2018 in your diaries!
