Colin Currie Quartet makes debut at the NCPA Beijing

This season Colin launches the Colin Currie Quartet, formed of some of the core members of the Colin Currie Group and long-time collaborators of Currie, Sam Walton, Adrian Spillett and Owen Gunnell. The quartet make their debut at the NCPA Beijing on 24 August as part of the Percussion Festival 2018, which sees percussion groups from across the world perform in the Chinese capital.

A dominant premiere in the quartet’s first season is a substantial new work for four marimbas by Kevin Volans, performed alongside Joseph Pereira’s Mallet Quartet, works by Steve Reich and solo pieces by Xenakis and Stockhausen, performed by Colin.

Performances in the quartet’s debut season performances include the NCPA Beijing and Wigmore Hall, amongst other UK and European venues.
