Composer's Notes

The dynamo of enthusiasm that propels his extraordinary musical skills; performing, conducting and imagining new ideas and his views on many varied conceptions make Daniel [Barenboim] a model and an exciting stimulus for us all.

I hope a little of that reveals itself in this 70th birthday present.

— Elliott Carter; June 29, 2012; New York City
