Percussion innovator Colin Currie explores an astonishing sound world of contemporary percussion from The Stoller Hall. The Quartet will bring together four works from the USA and UK, including two pieces for vibraphones and marimbas, and Steve Reich’s mesmerising minimalist masterpiece Drumming Part 1, a unifying influence for the whole programme. As co-commissioners of Dave Maric’s Nascent Forms, this performance represents the quartet’s UK premiere of the work.
The concert has been recorded as part of a collective response by artists, venues and a film company to the restrictions on live performance. The Polyphonic Concert Club offers members a chance to support music-making at the very highest level. The beautifully filmed online chamber recitals include a percussion quartet, violinist and vocal group, performing music from Byrd and Bach to Steve Reich.
The club’s first season features six concerts that have been recorded at independent venues across the UK including The Stoller Hall, St George’s Bristol and The National Centre for Early Music in York.
The Polyphonic Concert Club is a direct response to the decimation of live music caused by the global Coronavirus pandemic.
