Not Less Than the Good
Morgan Library
New York
United States

Tickets: $25 /$20
New Thread Quartet
J.D. McClatchy
David Morneau

Not Less Than the Good is a musical sunrise, a celebration of morning as embraced by Thoreau in Walden. Thoreau wrote about morning as a metaphor for intellectual and spiritual awakening: “The morning, which is the most memorable season of the day, is the awakening hour.” Commissioned by New Thread Quartet and composed by David Morneau, Not Less Than the Good simulates a sunrise by combining the meditative playing of the saxophone quartet with ambient synthesizers. The music grows from a single quiet note, adding notes and timbres, growing in fullness and depth. Underneath this are sounds recorded during the pre-dawn and early morning hours at Walden Pond: a chorus of insects, the lone song of dawn’s first bird which is joined by others in a raucous counterpoint, and the splashing of morning swimmers. The hour-long performance is punctuated by readings of excerpts from Walden—a secular prayer of hope for enlightenment—performed by poet J. D. McClatchy.

Morneau composed Not Less Than the Good for the bicentennial of Thoreau’s birth (July 12, 2017). In Walden, Thoreau invites us to reject the life we’re expected to live, through a pursuit of self enlightenment, through the effort to wake up. His words remain vital today. “I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by a conscious endeavor.”

The concert will feature: Patti Cudd on ghatam (an ancient clay pot percussion instrument of South India), Michael Lipsey on talking drum (an hourglass-shaped drum from West Africa), Cesare Papetti on darbuka (a middle eastern goblet drum).
