International Record Review - Outstanding Recording

"'What an amazing valedictory event for the indefatigable centenarian. This thoughtfully produced DVD of the event also includes extras – footage of a post-tonal rendition of “Happy Birthday to You” with Carter, beaming, looking on; liner notes by John Link, Fred Sherry, and Colin Matthews; and a segment “On Carter,” with filmed tributes by UK composers'" --Signal to Noise
