Product Description

Review

"In sum, this is a most valuable addition to the growing body of Elliott Carter literature. The fourteen chapters present a broad range of topics and approaches to this music, and address pieces throughout his career. As I have noted above, a few of the essays, particularly those by Heinemann, Ravenscroft, and Schmidt should become essential reading for musicians undertaking their initial forays into Carter's unique approach to composition. Finally, the book is well edited, and the musical examples are beautifully engraved."
--NOTES

Book Description

Elliott Carter's extraordinarily long musical career has engaged with many musical developments of the twentieth century. This collection of essays presents a diverse set of viewpoints on Carter's music, from the neo-classicism of the interwar period, through post-war modernism, to the reshaping of a modernist aesthetic in his late style.

Excellent Carter Studies Dec 9 2012
By Richard Derby - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This collection of scholarly studies about the music of the composer Elliott Carter is very well done. There are insights into Carter's harmonic and rhythmic techniques, as well as assessments (and re-assessments) of the nature and cumulative significance of his overall work in light of his more recent compositions. Having been published just before Carter's death at 103 (nearly 104) years old on November 5, 2012, this book serves as a fitting memorial to the man and to his powerful, moving music.
