Colin Currie

Colin Currie was born in 1976 and took up the piano and percussion at an early age. In 1990 he began his studies at the Junior Department of the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, where teachers included Pamela Dow and Sheila Desson. In 1992 he won the Gold Medal of the Shell/LSO Music Scholarship, performing Panufnik’s Concerto in the finale with the London Symphony Orchestra. In 1994 he was the first percussion finalist in the BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition, when he gave the first performance of Errollyn Wallen’s Concerto for Percussion. In the same year he began his studies at the Royal Academy of Music. He has appeared as a soloist with major orchestras throughout the world, and has had a number of works written specially for him, including the concerto by Michael Torke, the first performance of which he gave in 2001. Other works written for him include a concerto by Steve Martland and a work by Joe Duddell. He has given many performances of James MacMillan’s Veni, Veni, Emmanuel, which he recorded for Naxos (Naxos 8.554167). He has collaborated with a number of well known musicians in chamber music including the Labque sisters, Petersen Quartet and the Los Angeles Guitar Quartet and is involved in the continuing development of new and diverse repertoire for solo percussion. Colin Currie is a member of the Steve Martland Band, with which he has recorded and toured extensively in the United Kingdom and abroad.
