Commissioned by New Thread Quartet and composed by David Morneau, this world premiere of Not Less Than the Good simulates a sunrise by combining the meditative playing of the saxophone quartet with ambient synthesizers and sounds recorded during the pre-dawn and early morning hours at Walden Pond. The hour-long performance is punctuated by readings of excerpts from Henry David Thoreau’s Walden performed by poet J. D. McClatchy.
The exhibition This Ever New Self: Thoreau and his Journal will be open at 6:30 pm for program attendees.
$25; $20 for members; free for students with valid ID.
