...The Scene of the Crime...
Heptade for trumpet and 6 percussion
ArtistsColin Currie (percussion)
Hakan Hardenberger (trumpet, flugelhorn)
The album takes its name from Brett Dean’s 2017 composition, which is the Australian’s homage to the pair’s skill and infectious drive, scored for trumpet, flugelhorn and drum kit.
Joe Duddell’s Catch pairs marimba and trumpet in a lively, up-tempo score blurring the musical hierarchy of soloist and accompanist.
Tobias Broström’s Dream Variations evokes the paintings of Swedish artist Claes Eklundh through use of sustained percussion including Java gongs, vibraphone and dubaci.
The music of Daniel Börtz is often mystical and highly emotive and Dialogo 4 is no exception, the trumpet and percussion in partnership creating an immersive atmosphere.
Written in 1971, André Jolivet’s Heptade is the earliest work on the album and is perhaps the archetypal 20th-century pairing of these two instruments. The late French composer’s music tasks Hardenberger with a fiendish trumpet part while Currie deftly handles a dizzying array of unpitched percussion throughout.
“The duo with Hakan Hĺrdenberger 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
