More Info:

One of Steve Reich's most famous and enduring works, Music for 18 Musicians first captured the imagination of percussionist Colin Currie in the 1980s. Over the years that followed, Currie dutifully built his library of Reich scores and recordings, but it was this work in particular that truly captured his imagination, holding him in it's epic grasp ever since. Of Reich's comprehensive catalog, it is this warm and resonant composition that signifies a major breakthrough in the sphere of minimalist music. "The perfect musical beehive" is how Currie describes performing the piece-and it's easy to see why, with each musician purposefully teasing the material along, playing their own brilliantly contained part, yet contributing to something greater that hums with life. Following the success of his previous albums, "Steve Reich: Drumming" (2018) and "Colin Currie & Steve Reich Live at Fondation Louis Vuitton" (2019), Colin Currie is joined on this album by his closest musical colleagues and companions, the Colin Currie Group and Synergy Vocals, who recorded the work at London's Abbey Road Studios in 2022.
