Event Details

Rock stars of the classical world.

Described by the LA Times as a band of ‘super-musicians’, America’s Eighth Blackbird combines the finesse of a string quartet with the energy of a rock band.

This four-time Grammy Award-winning sextet revels in the works of contemporary classical music composers – played with love, virtuosity and a sense of adventure. This dynamic program features contemporary gems by Muhly, Dessner, Hearne and Andres, and a world premiere by Australian composer Holly Harrison.


MUHLY Doublespeak
DESSNER Murder Ballades
HARRISON Lobster Tales and Turtle Soup (World Premiere)*
ANDRES Checkered Shade

*Commissioned for Musica Viva Australia with support from Geoff Stearn and the Hildegard Project

Tour supported by the Musica Viva Amadeus Society

Featured non-Australian music: Muhly, Dessner, Hearne, Andres
