Notes and Editorial Reviews

Someone with a very bright future ahead of him is percussionist Colin Currie, a previous runner-up in the BBC's Young Musicians competition. His disc encounters difficulties that must also bedevil ocarina virtuosi: one must either be an indefatigable arranger or take what repertoire one can get. Markus Halt's Marimbasonic stands out as an idiomatic, cleverly constructed piece, but works such as Ney Rosauro's Cenas Amerisdias (m which Currie plays several instruments at once), and Alan Emslie's Hugh's Chilled Red tor solo snare drum, are probably more effective on stage. But never mind: Currie has a rare gift, demonstrated here in wonderfully showy Bach and Ravel arrangements.
