Programme Note

The Philharmonia is proud to present James Macmillan's latest exhilarating masterwork played by its dedicatee Colin Currie.

Currie was recently described by The Spectator as 'the world's finest and most daring percussionist.'

The work is performed alongside two popular choreographic classics that distill the bracing dance rhythms of Hungary and Russia into musical gold.
