"subtlety and imagination"

Turnage Martland Memorial (world premiere) / Britten-Pears Orchestra, cond. Marin Alsop

"Mark-Anthony Turnage’s new percussion piece made a striking centrepiece to this London concert… The closing “Lachryme”, so simple in design, has an eloquent melancholy that lingers. As always, Currie made a vivid focal point on multifarious percussion instruments."
Financial Times, April 2017 

"At the front, Colin Currie, not with the most extensive battery... For the virtuoso that he is, it was more about him being in the right place with the right implement and, most pertinently of all, contributing to music that remembers a departed soul with subtlety and imagination."
