Composer's Notes

Statement – Remembering Aaron is the first of several Lauds of friends of past years for solo violin. This one recalls Aaron Copland whose orchestral Statements have always interested me and includes ideas from his Ukelele Serenade and other works. It also suggests the warmth and generosity and nobility that meant so much to me. This solo was commissioned by the violinist Ole Bøhn and was composed in February 1999.

Elliott Carter, 1999

Available FOR SALE as part of 4 Lauds.
