Product Notes

The Scene of The Crime is a collection of the works performed by Colin Currie and Håkan Hardenberger in their duo recitals:

André Jolivet: Heptade

Joe Duddell: Catch

Tobias Broström: Dream Variations

Daniel Börtz: Dialogo 4

Brett Dean: ...the scene of the crime...

The duo with Hakan Hardenberger is my musical safe space for maximum risk-taking. From my earliest point of connection with this most regal of musicians, what entranced me was the fearless audacity of the endeavour. Envelopes pushed, or simply reinvented, boundaries moved and canvasses recast. Rehearsals are intense; not many words spoken, a glance here or there, a certain type of breath taken, whilst the concerts are zones of feverish intensity, many-coloured and highly emotional. Too many now to pick out - San Fransisco, Seoul, Verbier, London, the Hanover concert with three World Premieres - I want to thank him for his encouragement, daring, humour and above all, friendship. - Colin Currie

The Colin Currie Group was formed in 2006 for a performance of Steve Reich's Drumming, and the work has been a central pillar of its repertoire ever since.

The recording was funded through a Kickstarter campaign - check it out for more background on the recording. Steve Reich has been extremely generous in his support of the project, saying "it will be, I am sure, the best recording of Drumming ever made." The debut recording has already received a five-star review in The Times, stating “The album marks the debut of Colin Currie Records, a promising new outlet for the artistry and flair of Britain’s most adventurous percussion player.”
