PARTCH Ensemble returns after ten years to give the first complete performance of The Wayward, Harry Partch’s chronicle of hobo life. Dark Brother and Castor & Pollux complete the program. Three guest artists join the eight-member ensemble, playing 14 custom-made reproductions.
After a decade, PARTCH Ensemble returns to Jacaranda for the first ever complete performance of Harry Partch’s The Wayward, a chronicle of hobo life from 1935-41. Dark Brother, new to their repertoire, and the ever-popular Castor and Pollux complete the program. T.J. Troy intones the Dark Brother text excerpted from God’s Lonely Man by Thomas Wolfe. Three guest artists – Derek Stein, adapted viola, Dan Rosenboom, trumpet, and Ulrich Krieger, saxophone – join the core eight-member ensemble founded by Artistic Director John Schneider. The ensemble plays 14 custom instruments reproduced from Partch’s originals.
