John Cage: Etudes Australes, Books I and II
In celebration of the centennial of the birth of American composer John Cage (1912-1992), Aaron Jackson returns to the Boston Athenæum this fall to offer a series of Saturday programs featuring favorite Cage works for piano. The first two programs place early compositions for the dance alongside two late Number Pieces, and are followed by the first two books of his Etudes Australes, based on maps of the southern sky from Antonín Becvár’s Atlas Australis. The concert series also includes performances by cellist Adrienne Taylor and trumpet player Ben Holmes.
To Reserve: Concerts are free and open to the public. Reservations are preferred but not required. To register, please log onto your My Athenæum profile or call the Athenæum’s reservation line, (617) 720-7600.
