Colin Currie presents the first concerto recording on his own label: a pair of works by the innovative composer HK Gruber, with conductors Juanjo Mena and John Storgårds and the BBC Philharmonic. To write one masterpiece for solo percussion and orchestra may be regarded as an adventure; to write two combines for a colossus. Such is the case for the dual works on this recording (Rough Music, into the open…), which span the full creative freedom, daring, and brilliance of HK Gruber.
