  • about this album

    This collection of mid-century works from American composer Elliot Carter presents a study of contrasts, in which seemingly divergent instrumentation, form, and harmony are juxtaposed to create pieces that simultaneously look forward and back. The album captures members of the Contemporary Chamber Ensemble performing these now classic works of American 20th-century music.
