James Larter brings an eclectic programme that showcases his virtuoso playing and inventive compositions, in collaboration with cellist Colin Alexander. Larter’s programme explores the natural environment through the geography and traditions of Papua New Guinea and Australia, as well as works celebrating water and Asanga, the Sanskrit word meaning ‘freedom from attachment’.
Praised for his dynamic, exciting stage presence, James is a multi-awardwinning percussionist equally at home giving recitals, recording and performing orchestral repertoire. Most recently, he was selected as a 2021 City Music Foundation Artist.
Colin Alexander is a composer and cellist working across a range of disciplines and traditions. Colin performs regularly with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, LSO Ensemble and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.
