CD Inside Right Side: Transcendentalism, Impressionistic Music, and Compositions Inspired by Henry Thoreau

Although the European impressionist music movement occurred one generation after the New England transcendental movement, their genesis and purpose are similar. Both react to regimentation. Whereas the Transcendentalist literature protests the rigid state of intellectualism, the impressionist compositions react to the dark extravagances and excesses of European Romanticism. Both movements instead appeal to the spiritual, to the playful, and to the spontaneous. One is literary. The other is musical. Through compositions arranged on the piano, Mr. Andrew Celentano celebrates the kinship between Transcendentalism and Impressionism .  Mr. Celentano performs regularly at the BSO Cafe at Symphony Hall in Boston. For the Annual Gathering in Concord, Mr. Celentano will perform works by Impressionist composers Debussy and Ravel, as well as works of his own composition. Mr. Celentano's compositions are inspired by his study of Henry Thoreau's Walden and other writings.

I have met with but one or two persons in the course of my life who understood the art of Walking, that is, of taking walks, who had a genius, so to speak, for sauntering; which word is beautifully derived "from idle people who roved about the country, in the middle ages, and asked charity, under pretence of going la sainte terre".  Henry David Thoreau
