Elliott Carter : collected essays and lectures, 1937-1995 by Elliott Carter( Book )

24 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Carter writes about his own music (in articles that are classic texts for all students of his compositional oeuvre), about new music in Europe and the United States, and about the relations between music and the other arts. Other pieces range from a consideration of aspects of music in general (such as time and rhythm as a philosophical problem) to the work of individual composers, such as Debussy, Ives, Varese, and Stravinsky, among numerous others. As a whole, the collection is the expression of Carter's musical philosophy, and a valuable record for historians of modern music
