Book Description

Sept. 27 2012 0521113628 978-0521113625
Over the course of an astonishingly long career, Elliott Carter has engaged with many musical developments of the twentieth and now twenty-first centuries - from his early neo-classic music of the interwar period, to his modernist works of conflict and opposition in the 1960s and 1970s, to the reshaping of a modernist aesthetic in his latest compositions. Elliott Carter Studies throws new light on these many facets of Carter's extensive musical oeuvre. This collection of essays presents historic, philosophic, philological and theoretical points of departure for in-depth investigations of individual compositions, stylistic periods in Carter's output and his contributions to a variety of genres, including vocal music, the string quartet and the concerto. The first multi-authored book to appear on Carter's music, it brings together new research from a distinguished team of leading international Carter scholars, providing the reader with a wide range of perspectives on an extraordinary musical life.

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

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
