Blackbird (r)evolution

Duo Ebano

TTK 0048

Black is the color that clarinet, bass clarinet, piano and Seaboard® have in common. Like the blackbird in the song by Lennon/McCartney, we want to learn how to fly, explore new musical territories, and shape a more authentic and personal voice.

About the album

Black is the color that clarinet, bass clarinet, piano and Seaboard® have in common. Like the blackbird in the song by Lennon/McCartney, we want to learn how to fly, explore new musical territories, and shape a more authentic and personal voice.

Blackbird (r)evolution is a canvas of Duo Ebano’s features, like a bizarre mirror where you can dive in. In a mirror we just see a reflection, which doesn’t necessarily show what we really are. By not accepting the first impression, we can learn how to see beyond the mirror, “take these sunken eyes and learn to see.”

The program represents the soul of Duo Ebano, shifting between standard repertoire and new music. Moreover, it displays composers who try to enhance the clarinet and piano combination, forcing its limits and inventing new ways to make these two instruments communicate, with the intent to achieve a (r)evolution of this set-up.

What to expect from this album? Excitement, fear, kindness, a mother’s song, goosebumps, anxiety, laugh, Radiohead-like moments, mantras, progressive-rock bands, a floating boat in a dark and warm night, a broken carillon, relentlessness, the music of the water.
