Colin appeared on Inside Music, a new series on BBC Radio Three last Saturday, 7 April 2018.  During the programme, Currie talks about his admiration for horn players, what it's like being caught up in a performance of a piece for two marimbas, and how Jean Sibelius can make a waltz sound bittersweet.

Colin's choice of music includes variations on an ancient tune played with improvisatory panache by Jordi Savall, Mozart's powerful Requiem, a dramatic work for four hands at one piano by Schubert, and Steve Martland's outrageous 'Horses of Instruction'.

Colin also reveals his 'must listen piece'. It's music he describes as 'thrilling, engaging and strange' - and he wants everyone to hear it at least once in their life.

Listen to the programme here, available until 7 May 2018.
