Colin Currie (percussion)
JACK Quartet

Award-winning British percussionist Colin Currie joins forces with dynamic contemporary music specialists, the JACK Quartet, for a programme of 20th- and 21st-century works, including world premieres by Simon Holt and Suzanne Farrin.

These are joined by two virtuosic Xenakis chamber works - the impossibly demanding Rebonds B for solo percussion and the 1983 string quartet Tetras with its eerie, woodwind-like sound manipulation and unsettling rhythmic patterning.
