Colin Currie Podcast

Colin Currie interviewed by Edward Seckerson 

In an interview with Edward Seckerson, high-flying percussionist Colin Currie discusses the choices he’s made and the challenges that face young musicians today. As part of BBT Celebrated on Saturday 18 May 2013, Colin Currie joined a panel of leading music professionals for a provocative debate Is Talent Enough? BBT’s decade of nurturing young artists has highlighted the pressure to participate in more than just making music in order to build and sustain careers. Is it idealistic to think talent and hard work are all it takes in the 21st century? Are recording and commissioning necessities or luxuries? Is social networking a necessity or distraction? How does a brilliant young musician find the freedom and space for artistic inspiration and development? Who helps them?
