Eighth Blackbird wants you to know what is happening in new music. Right. This. Minute. Winner of four Grammy Awards and hailed as “one of the smartest, most dynamic contemporary classical ensembles on the planet” (Chicago Tribune), the sextet has been a catalyst in the chamber music world for more than 20 years, committed to nurturing the next generation of adventurous composers. Here, the group introduces us to a diverse cohort of exciting contemporary voices—mostly born in the 1980s and ’90s—whose compositions are inspired by a thrilling range of topics, from Lewis Carroll stories to Afro-Caribbean traditions, Indian home cooking, and Icelandic glaciers. Pioneering electroacoustic composer and performer Pamela Z joins for the Bay Area premiere of a newly commissioned work built on the cadences in the speech patterns of members of the ensemble
