‘Professionalism and proficiency amplified by that indefinable X Factor, charisma.’ New York Times.
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.
