Description

On fred, the celebrated contemporary music sextet performs sparkling works showcasing the broader chromatic palette of an American master best-known for his piano music.

The program is imbued with the composer’s eccentric spirit, improvisational surprises, and social conscience: eighth blackbird’s propulsive new arrangement of Rzewski’s dramatic Coming Together, in which music accompanies the text of a letter by an inmate killed in the Attica prison uprising of 1971; the energetically playful “musical game” Les Moutons de Panurge; and the world premiere recording of Rzewski’s inventive Pocket Symphony, written specially for eighth blackbird.
