Currie Plays Grime

Repertoire Percussion Concerto, by Helen Grime

Edinburgh’s own percussion ace Colin Currie charms and galvanises with his exuberant playing, as SCO audiences well know from his regular and much-admired collaborations with the Orchestra.

He brings the kaleidoscopic Percussion Concerto by Aberdeenshire-raised Helen Grime, a beguiling mix of exquisite colours and breathtaking virtuosity on metal and wood that exploits Currie’s gifts for magical melody and sonic seduction.

Exciting young German conductor Clemens Schuldt complements Grime’s lyrical Concerto with two exotic desert-island opera overtures by Haydn and Eberl, and the taut power of Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony.

Programme to include: 

  • EBERL Overture, Die Königin der schwarzen Inseln (The Queen of the Black Island)

  • GRIME Percussion Concerto

  • HAYDN Overture, L’isola disabitata 

  • BEETHOVEN Symphony No 4
