In this attractive programme of old and new, Berlin-born AndrÈ de Ridder and Sinfonia ViVA bring together a striking percussion concerto with the classical refinement of Mozartís engaging German Dances and the Beethoven symphony which the composer fondly described as his best work and in which Wagner saw ëthe apotheosis of danceí. Time Release, with its infectious flashes of jazzy energy, was composed for tonightís soloist, Colin Currie, the multipercussionist known as much for his charisma as for his impeccable technique.
