The Music of Elliott Carter, Vol. 5: Nine Compositions (1994-2002)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Blair Sanderson
Active and acute in his nineties, Elliott Carter has maintained his position as the leading American modernist, and his creative powers are undiminished. The fifth volume in Bridge's series brings together seven intimate miniatures and two substantial works. The "Oboe Quartet" is as fluid and rhythmically varied as any of the "String Quartets," and the oboe's athletic part strongly recalls Carter's "Sonata for flute, oboe, cello, and harpsichord," perhaps pointedly. Carter's inclination to reminisce should not be overlooked as an important aspect of his late works. "Of Challenge and of Love," a song cycle for soprano and piano, is a major accomplishment, the composer's ...

Active and acute in his nineties, Elliott Carter has maintained his position as the leading American modernist, and his creative powers are undiminished. The fifth volume in Bridge's series brings together seven intimate miniatures and two substantial works. The "Oboe Quartet" is as fluid and rhythmically varied as any of the "String Quartets," and the oboe's athletic part strongly recalls Carter's "Sonata for flute, oboe, cello, and harpsichord," perhaps pointedly. Carter's inclination to reminisce should not be overlooked as an important aspect of his late works. "Of Challenge and of Love," a song cycle for soprano and piano, is a major accomplishment, the composer's first foray in this medium since his "Three Poems of Robert Frost." The full range of Carter's expression is employed in these five songs, though "Quatrains From Harp Lake" is the most effective and moving. The remaining pieces are short but not slight, and each shows Carter's care with small forms. Perhaps most significant of these are the "Two Diversions," in which Carter's language is simplified in a manageable form for young pianists. Their transparency may serve newcomers as a good place to start with this composer. Excellent performances from Speculum, Tony Arnold, and Charles Rosen, among others, make this album stimulating and enjoyable.
Gramophone - Arnold Whittall
The latest installment of Bridge's expanding Carter series, comprising works composed between 1994 and 2002, is nicely balanced between larger and smaller-scale pieces, with several of the latter performed by their dedicatees.... Indispensable.
