Elliott Carter: Collected Essays and Lectures, 1937-95 (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This volume of essays and lectures by the American composer, Elliott Carter (born 1908), including many previously unpublished or uncollected, shows his thinking and writing on music and associated issues developing in parallel with his career as a composer. His reputation became internationally established in the 1950s, and the material in the book offers a commentary on the course of American and European music in the succeeding decades. The articles discuss not only Carter's own music and the state of new music in Europe and the United States, but the relations between music and the other arts. Other pieces range from a consideration of aspects of music generally, such as time and rhythm as a philosophical problem, to the work of many individual composers such as Debussy, Ives, Varese and Stravinsky.
