"I find a great strength in Carter's music. Personally I draw a great deal from it. I can sense a distant affinity, an effort of reflection that touches me. Of the American musicians, his is the writing I read with the most sustained care; the individual and his trajectory are quite exceptional" (Pierre Boulez, 1988)
This is a superb set of Elliott Carter, with three 1980s compositions, and one from the U.S. bicentennial year of 1976. The recordings of the Ensemble Intercontemporain, with Pierre Boulez conducting, were made at IRCAM in Paris in December 1987. The same works were performed at an 80th birthday concert for Carter in Paris a year later.
The highlight is the "Oboe Concerto" (1986-7), performed by Heinz Holliger. In Carter's words from the liner notes, "it is in one continuous movement with the soloist accompanied in its widely varying, mercurial moods by a percussionist and four violas. The main orchestra opposes their flighty charges with a more regular set of ideas, usually on the serious side, sometimes bursting out dramatically."
