Irish Heritage is presenting Percussive Counterpoint, the London debut of percussionist Alex Petcu-Colan at The Forge in Camden on Tuesday 17 November 2015. An Irish musician of Romanian origin, Alex Petcu-Colan is one of the few Irish percussionists to focus on solo and chamber music. He is a founding member of the Beyond Borders Percussion Group, an international collective of some of the finest percussionists in the world, and the Bangers and Crash Percussion Group, a new Irish percussion ensemble. He recently won first prize at the Irish Freemasons Young Musician of the Year competition and reached the semi-finals at the Tromp International Percussion Competition. At The Forge, Alex will be playing on marimba, vibraphone and percussion, presenting a fascinating solo recital featuring music by Steve Reich, Joseph Schwantner, Keiko Abe, Debussy, J.S. Bach and more.
