Description
The Juilliard Quartet premiered Elliott Carter's second and third quartets and were closely associated with the Pulitzer Prize–winning composer and his rich, visionary body of work. A new recording of his fifth and final quartet is combined here with their landmark 1990–91 accounts of the previous four.

"Next to the human voice, which is the prototypical and ideal instrument, the string quartet is the subtlest medium yet devised to convey musical ideas…. This intensely dramatic, highly complex music will not appeal to everyone who enjoys the 18th-century grace of Boccherini or the bleak northern landscapes of Grieg and Sibelius, but they are among the most important American compositions of the middle and late 20th century, they richly reward attentive listening and they are given performances that Carter himself calls 'deeply understanding'…. With pianist Christopher Oldfather, Robert Mann, the quartet's founder and first violinist, fills out the set in an eloquent performance of Carter's Duo for Violin and piano."—Joseph McLellan, Washington Post
