"One of the most respected composers of the second half of the 20th century, [Carter] blended the achievements of European modernism and American “ultra-modernism” into a unique style of surging rhythmic vitality, intense dramatic contrast, and innovative facture." David Schiff, revised by Mark D. Porcaro in Grove Music Online.
Jacob Lateiner (1928-2010), a noted American pianist and long-time teacher at Juilliard, commissioned Carter's Piano Concerto and gave its first performance in 1967 with the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Leinsdorf.
