The disc features Elliot Carter’s pivotal Piano Sonata (1945–46), the breakthrough work in which Carter found his voice and projected the scope of his talent, and his transcendental Night Fantasies (1980), written for a group of four pianists including Ms. Oppens, who gave the premiere. Seven shorter pieces written between 1994 and 2007 complete the disc, which concludes with the world premiere recording of Carter’s virtuosic Caténaires (2006), a harmonically compelling, fiendishly difficult, toccata-like succession of rapid-fire 16th notes.
