Elliott Carter

Late works

Pierre-Laurent Aimard

(Ondine)

In the case of Elliott Carter “late works” really do mean “late”. The earliest work here, “Dialogues” for piano and chamber orchestra, was composed when he was 95. The last, “Epigrams” for piano trio, a collection of characteristically terse miniatures, dates from the year of Carter’s death at the age of 104 in 2012. His music retained its intellectual grip right to the end and an all-star line-up of performers — pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, violinist Isabelle Faust, percussionist Colin Currie, and the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Oliver Knussen — does it proud.
