Mr. Carter has said that he conceives his musical works as dramas to be acted out by the performers thinking of a score in terms of a scenario the scenario for the second quartet which won a Pulitzer Prize as soon as it was introduced by the Juilliard Quartet in 1980 is an elaborate one. The work comprises an introduction for movements and a conclusion plus three cadenza has one each for the older cello and violin which separate the four inner movements. The four instruments introduced themselves in the introduction rather in the manner of the characters and a comedian. A lot of day and one of the four dominates each of the four inner movements except the
final Allegro in which to quote the composer non-cooperation gives way to collaboration. The conclusion is a summing up in which in contrast to the introduction it is unity rather than diversity that is emphasized. The sequence of these various sections is as follows. Introduction. Allegro Fantastico cadenza for Viola presto it's going to sound oh good ends of her cello. I'm down to yes but it's evil cadenza for violin allegro and conclusion. Elliot Carter's string quartet number two played by the Colombian quartet love our crowns and Michael Tolomeo violins. Weldon Butler Viola and Benjamin Smith cello.
