Notes & Reviews:

To celebrate his 100th birthday, Elliott Carter's Complete String Quartets have been newly recorded by the Pacifica Quartet, 'Musical America's' Ensemble of the Year for 2009. Volume 1 (NXS 8559362) was critically acclaimed: "a knockout" (Limelight), "Music with heart as well as a brain" (4 Stars, The Times ), "the best possible introduction to Carter's music" (5 Stars, The Guardian ). This disc presents the three remaining string quartets by the composer hailed by Aaron Copland as "one of America's most distinguished creative artists in any field".
