A dynamic and adventurous soloist, Currie’s unrivalled commitment to commissioning and creating new music was recognised in 2015 by the Royal Philharmonic Society who awarded him the Instrumentalist Award. Currie forged a pioneering path in creating new music for percussion and has premiered works by composers including Steve Reich, Sir Harrison Birtwistle, Louis Andriessen, Sir James MacMillan, Elliott Carter, HK Gruber, Mark-Anthony Turnage, Helen Grime, Einojuhani Rautavaara, Jennifer Higdon, Rolf Wallin, Andrew Norman, Julia Wolfe and Simon Holt.
Currie also performs widely with his dynamic ensemble the Colin Currie Group, formed in 2006, who specialise in the music of Steve Reich. In October 2017 Currie launched Colin Currie Records, in conjunction with LSO Live, as a platform for his diverse projects, celebrating the extraordinary developments for percussion music over the past century. The label’s first release was the debut recording of the Colin Currie Group: Steve Reich’s Drumming.
Colin Currie was born in Edinburgh and studied percussion with Pamella Dow at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama before continuing his studies at London’s Royal Academy of Music, where he is now a visiting professor. Currie is Associate Artist at London’s Southbank Centre.
