This Naxos disc, Elliott Carter 100th Anniversary Release, is timed to coincide with Carter's 100th birthday, observed on December 11, 2008. It comes with a menu of 10 relatively short pieces, none written before 1984 and with many dating from the 1990s and 2000s. Seeing Elliott Carter's music played makes a huge difference in how it is perceived; to be able to watch the expressions of the musicians playing it and what is done with the instruments establishes Carter's music as an exact, sophisticated, and even genteel kind of science, whereas just hearing it might prove, to some listeners, an impenetrably alien experience.
Carter, . 100th Anniversary Release - Mosaic, Dialogue, Solo Pieces (New Music Concerts, Aitken). More spare, yielding chamber music is found on the new Naxos disc. The 2005 Mosaic is Carter at his most inviting, in a program showing how even his minor works have a strong reason for existence.

Elliott (Cook) Carter Composer. Robert Aitken Zedlau. New Music Concerts Ensemble. Elliott (Cook) Carter Composer. Gra. Erica Goodman and New Music Concerts Ensemble are hardly less insightful than the Swiss Chamber Soloists (Neos), while in Dialogues David Swan yields only marginally to the pianism of Nicolas Hodges (Bridge, 4/06) in music which, though not without peremptory asides, is a scintillating discourse of equals and probably the pick of Carter’s recent works. From among Carter’s many miniatures inspired by fellow composers and musicians, Robert Aitken revels in the sharp contrasts of Scrivo in vento while Max Christie brings a fine-honed wit to Gra.

So in writing Mosaic, commissioned by the Nash Ensemble, I decided to explore many of his exciting inventions to recall his friendship in the early 1930’s. The score is formed by many short mosaic-like tessera that I hope make one coordinated impression. Elliott Carter: 100th Anniversary Release. Naxos . 59614 (2008).
