“No one has been a more committed champion [of Carter's music] than Oliver Knussen, and he conducts all the orchestral pieces here with his familiar feisty clarity. Pierre-Laurent Aimard is the equally quick-witted soloist in the piano works.”
- The Guardian

Elliott Carter was a Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer who was known for his explorations in atonality and rhythmic complexity. This release from Ondine sees his late works placed front and centre, including Dialogues, 2 Controversies and a Conversation, and Epigrams, pieces that display brevity characteristic of this period in Carter's career and which frequently explore themes of exchange between instruments. These landmark works of American contemporary composition are performed by eminent soloists such as pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, violinist Isabelle Faust and percussionist Colin Currie, along with the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group, the BBC Symphony Orchestra, and conductor Oliver Knussen, making this release an ideal introduction to Carter's 21st-century compositions.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
