Celebrating Elliott Carter in his 100th year, Ursula Oppens has recorded the complete solo piano music for Cedille and provided authoritative performances of these difficult but brilliant keyboard works, which are as rewarding as they are challenging. Oppens has played and recorded Carter's music since the 1970s and has helped establish several of his major works in the repertoire, such as the Piano Sonata 1945-1946, and Night Fantasies 1980, which represent Carter's early and middle phases, respectively. He's still alive, and he's still composing. And he still lives in the same Greenwich Village apartment he's inhabited for six decades. Elliott Carter was at the 1924 New York premiere of Igor Stravinsky's Rite of Spring. From that moment, he says, he wanted to be a composer. His parents did not approve - how many times have we heard that. Carter landed some of his first jobs as a composer writing music for Kirstein. Paris And Another War. Another Harvard connection sent Carter to Paris. Ursula Oppens has been a steadfast and masterful champion of Elliott Carter's music for more than three decades, and her recital encompassing the prolific 100-year-old composer's complete piano music clearly is a labor of love. What is more, her interpretations have evolved. For example, Oppens' 1998 Night Fantasies recording Music & Arts abounds with dead-on accuracy and drive. However, it sounds relatively earnest and literal next to this far more flexible, overtly contrasted, and color-conscious remake
