author of text
adapted from Thoreau's text

Thoreau (1915), uses quotations from the Transcendentalist philosopher as its text, and is an arrangement of material from the finale of Ives’s ‘Concord’ Piano Sonata, itself a more extended portrait of Thoreau and his contemporaries.

from notes by Calum MacDonald © 2005

Thoreau (1915), fondée sur des citations du philosophe transcendantaliste, est un arrangement du matériau du finale de la Sonate pour piano «Concord», où Ives brosse un portrait davantage étoffé de Thoreau et de ses contemporains.
