Steve Reich Music for Pieces of Wood

New York Counterpoint

Mallet Quartet

Drumming Part 1

Vermont Counterpoint

Quartet (2013)

Colin Currie Group

In the music of Steve Reich change is a perceptible process, sounding out over long and short spans, simultaneously fast and slow.

The virtuoso Colin Currie Group, who specialise in performing the music of Reich, bring a programme of early percussive classics - Music for Pieces of Wood, Mallet Quartet and the ground-breaking Drumming Part 1 - alongside two intricate Counterpoints featuring clarinet and flute, where players perform along recordings of themselves. Canons spiral and seethe in ever more complex interlocking patterns, revolving in time. The evening culminates in the beguiling, lyrical Quartet (2013) written especially for Colin Currie
