Naxos is delighted to present this special birthday tribute to one of the leading composers of our time. The release comprises a full length CD and DVD release for a very special price.
Twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize, first composer to receive the United States National Medal of Arts, one of the few composers ever awarded Germany's Ernst Von Siemens Music Prize, and in 1988 made ‘Commandeur dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres’ by the Government of France, Elliott Carter is internationally recognized as one of the leading American voices of the classical music tradition.
“Elliott Carter is one of America’s most distinguished creative artists in any field”
Aaron Copland nominating Elliott Carter for the Gold Medal of the National Institute of Arts and Letters for Eminence in Music (1971)
