Eighth Blackbird: Phoenix
After more than two decades of moving music forward, Eighth Blackbird continues to define the cutting edge of contemporary classical music. Hailed as “one of the smartest, most dynamic ensembles on the planet” (Chicago Tribune), Eighth Blackbird began in 1996 as a group of six entrepreneurial Oberlin Conservatory students and continues today under the leadership of founding members pianist Lisa Kaplan and percussionist Matthew Duvall. Eighth Blackbird has won four Grammy Awards for Best Small Ensemble/Chamber Music Performance over its 23-year history and has become “a brand-name defined by adventure, vibrancy and quality.” (Detroit Free Press). Eighth Blackbird’s Phoenix is a celebration of some of contemporary classical music’s most exciting works.
