Elliott Carter at 100

Elliott Carter at 100

"[Carter’s music] is intellectually rigorous, astringent, arresting, intensively organized… clear in its gestures, elaborate yet terse rhythmically and elegant sonically." The Globe and Mail (Canada)

Elliott Carter, dean of American high modernism, has crafted a body of music that is matchless in its intense, razor-sharp complexity, shimmering instrumental colors and radical counterpoint. Erika Duke-Kirkpatrick (cello), April Guthrie (cello), David Johnson (percussion), Mark Menzies (violin), Kathryn Pisaro (oboe), William Powell (clarinet) and Rachel Rudich (flute) are among the virtuoso players in this tribute to Carter on the occasion of his centenary. The program consists of chamber pieces spanning the music legend’s illustrious career, including Sonata for Flute, Oboe, Cello and Harpsichord (1952), Esprit Rude/Esprit Doux (1985), Enchanted Preludes (1988) and Oboe Quartet (2001).
