Elliott Carter Centenary

Elliott Carter Centenary
American master composer Elliott Carter turns 100 on 11 December 2008.

In celebration of this milestone, Carter's publishers — Associated Music Publishers and Hendon Music — have produced an Elliott Carter 2008 Centennial CD sampler. This orchestral collection, along with its thoughtful essay written by Frank J. Oteri (editor of the American Music Center's webzine NewMusicBox.org), offers an incisive introduction to Carter's astonishing 70-year-plus career. Paul Griffiths — music critic, writer, librettist, and Carter-collaborator — offers concise, insightful annotations for each of the 30 selections on the disc.
