    Tan Dun Water Concerto (27’)
    Lutosławski Symphony No. 3 (28’)


  • Eva Ollikainen conductor
  • Colin Currie percussion

Colin Currie takes on Tan Dun’s extraordinary, culture-crossing Water Concerto.

Life finds a way, and even under Soviet repression, composers were testing boundaries and telling forbidden truths. Arvo Pärt drew on the music of the past to liberate explosive new creative forces. Lutosławski reached for all the colours of a full symphony orchestra, and launched glittering sonic fireworks into grey Cold War skies. Eva Ollikainen rediscovers two modern classics, and Colin Currie – in the words of one critic, ‘surely the world’s finest and most daring percussionist’ – explores new ways of listening, with the extraordinary, culture-crossing Water Concerto by Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon composer Tan Dun.
