eighth blackbird celebrates music by the young generation of composers from around the world in this fascinating, unpredictable program. These 30-somethings are more eclectic and dynamic than their predecessors, exploring myriad styles and sounds in their music. Swedish composer Fabian Svensson enacts a thrillingly intense, virtuosic face-off between the “two sides” of eighth blackbird, and American Dan Visconti’s Fractured Jams feeds all manner of pop music through a musical shredder, leaving us with a hyperactive, over-caffeinated jam session. A calm, beautiful work by New York composer Timo Andres contrasts with renowned French composer Bruno Mantovani’s challenging new work for eighth blackbird, here with its U.S. premiere.
