Celebrate the joy of the new with Eighth Blackbird. The closest thing classical music has to a rock band, this ensemble – described by the LA Times as a collection of ‘supermusicians’ – revels in the work of living composers, played with love, virtuosity and enjoyment. This tour sees them delving into contemporary gems by Muhly, Dessner, Hearne and Andres, alongside a world premiere by Sydney composer Holly Harrison.


Program

  • Nico Muhly: Doublespeak

  • Holly Harrison:  New Work (World Premiere)*
  • Ted Hearne:  By-By Huey
  • Timo Andres:  Checkered Shade
