Duplicated from (Colin Currie Records Colin Currie and Håkan Hardenberger "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 fearles 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 Percussionist Colin Currie and trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger have earned a reputation as fearless innovators. The charismatic and virtuosic duo have performed together for over a decade, and their first album on Colin Currie Records presents four works written for the duo alongside André Jolivet's Heptade, written for Maurice André.
