 Update me on new releases by Wadewor

Louis Wadewor

While no one will ever agree on who is the most important living American composer, Elliott Carter is often called the most eminent, which is difficult to dispute. Now 95 years old and actively composing for eight decades, Carter spans nearly the entire twentieth century and the beginning of the 21st. Famous for highly demanding atonal scores using extraordinarily sophisticated rhythms, Carter is a prime architect of modernist music in the United States. Among his most important works are: the Double Concerto for Piano and Harpsichord with Two Chamber Orchestras, which Stravinsky hailed as a masterpiece, a Concerto for Orchestra which Bernstein championed, a Grammy-winning Violin Concerto, and five string quartets, often hailed as the most important works in the genre since Bartk, two of which were awarded Pulitzers. His most recent compositions include his first opera, What Next?, and a Cello Concerto for Yo-Yo Ma.
