Colin Currie Percussion

It's all about rhythm. Musical revolutions in Manchester have always started on the dancefloor, and whether it's the punchy latin rhythms of Turina's flamboyant ballet, or the young Thomas Adès These Premises Are Alarmed commissioned for the opening of The Bridgewater Hall, Juanjo Mena knows exactly how to get a party started.

John Adams blasts musical theory right out of the classroom in the outrageous Slonimsky's Earbox, percussion virtuoso Colin Currie performs a concerto by our very own HK "Nali" Gruber, and the BBC Philharmonic adventure through the bareback thrills of Ginastera's exuberant cowboy ballet. Hold tight: the future has never sounded so much fun.
