Product Description

Au Quai : Bassoon and Viola By : Elliott Carter : Boosey & Hawkes Chamber Music Series : Published by Boosey & Hawkes : # M051104451
Au Quai by : Elliott Carter

Written for the London Sinfonietta for Oliver Knussen's 50th birthday; and first performed by members of that ensemble in 2000 at Queen Elizabeth Hall; London. Recorded by Peter Kolkay; bassoon; and Maureen Gallagher; viola; on Bridge Records. The composer states: “The title of this piece was suggested by Arnold Schoenberg's short story 'To the Wharfs' in which he describes the mounting anxiety of the members of a French fishing village as the boats and the sea-bound fisherman failed to appear after a storm and several days' absence. When they were suddenly sighted all shouted 'to the wharfs; aux quais; O.K.'” 3 minutes.
