    Celebrate Elliott Carter's 101st Birthday with Composer's Four-Disc Nonesuch Retrospective

    Composer Elliott Carter turns 101 years old today. Earlier this year, as part of the composer's centennial celebration, Nonesuch Records released Elliott Carter: A Nonesuch Retrospective, featuring most of the recordings Nonesuch made of Carter’s music between 1968 and 1985.

    The Observer described the four-disc set as "covetable and historic," including, as it does, timeless performances by such acclaimed musicians as Paul Jacobs, Gilbert Kalish, the Composers Quartet, Jan DeGaetani, Fred Sherry, Arthur Weisberg, the Contemporary Chamber Ensemble, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra led by James Levine.

    As part of the Nonesuch Store Anniversary Sale, the retrospective set, with its 58-page booklet of photos, score examples, texts, and tributes by musicians and composers, is now 33 1/3% off the standard list price—almost twice the normal Nonesuch Store discount—making it just $19.98, now through the holidays.

    The acclaimed trio Mountain Man's first album in eight years, Magic Ship, is out now. The record includes eleven originals plus interpretations of songs by Ted Lucas and Michael Hurley, and a traditional hymn—"intimate, close-harmony songs that tap into an ageless essence of traditional ballads and lullabies as they contemplate companionship, family, love and death," says the New York Times. Nonesuch Store CD and vinyl orders include an exclusive signed print while supplies last; bundle options include an exclusive tote bag. The trio will be at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on September 24 and will tour the US this fall.
