In honor of the 108th anniversary of Elliott Carter's birth, G. Schirmer and Associated Music Publishers announce a newly engraved set of parts for his Variations for Orchestra (1955). Its score was engraved in the 1990s with the composer's review, but until now performances used orchestral parts reproduced from hand-written masters. These new engravings were extracted from the digital files used to prepare the score, and additional cues were added to the parts.
Elliott Carter's Quintet for Piano and String Quartet will be performed on the New York Philharmonic's Contact! festival concert at National Sawdust on January 23rd.
Many performances of Elliott Carter's music are available for streaming at no cost on the website InstantEncore.com.
