Colin Currie Quartet

The Barn

Described by Steve Reich as “one of the greatest musicians in the world today," and by Gramophone Magazine as “at the summit of percussion performance today”,Colin Currie is the soloist of choice for many of the world’s foremost conductors.

The Colin Currie Quartet was formed in 2018 to present the diverse music written for percussion quartet. Comprising Colin Currie, Owen Gunnell, Adrian Spillett and Sam Walton, the Quartet performs a variety of adventurous works, centring on those by Steve Reich and composers inspired by his influential writing. As some of the world’s leading solo, symphonic and chamber percussionists, each player of the Quartet brings a different and insightful slant to the art of chamber percussion performance to collectively present “a sonic display of startling magnificence” (Observer).

Featuring a new work from Scottish composer Aileen Sweeney, this unmissable concert is being co-promoted by Woodend Music Society and Aboyne Arts & Theatre Development Group and supported by Chamber Music Scotland.
