After a decade, PARTCH Ensemble returned 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 completed the program. T.J. Troy intoned 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 – joined the core eight-member ensemble founded by Artistic Director John Schneider. The ensemble plays 14 custom instruments reproduced from Partch’s originals.
