HÂKAN HARDENBERGER & COLIN CURRIE
ëIt is as if we have come across Edgard VarËse in a smoky jazz club, relaxing with a glass, yet only
round the corner from his avant-garde composition desk. Above all, Heptade entertains.í
Currie on the French Jolivetís Heptade
Take the top Swedish trumpeter and a brilliant Scottish percussionist ñ both renowned for their superb technical abilities, extraordinary visual flair and astonishing musicianship ñ and watch the sparks fly! Come expecting to be dazzled. Their innovative programme features a line-up of international composers including Dave Maric, one of todayís most exciting British composers, heavily influenced by jazz, pop and electronic music. New York-based Lukas Ligeti, son of the late Gyˆrgy, is both a gifted composer and an improvising percussionist. Woodpecker by Hollandís leading composer, is ëa highly exuberant and at times amusingly virtuosic miniatureí, according to Currie.
