Elliott Carter on Elliott Carter

No embed on this one, but the click-through is worth the time.

Elliott Carter is arguably one of the most important and distinguished composers of the 20th century, and his music seems to run the gamut of style. In this interview series, he discusses his origins as a composer while a soundtrack of his own music lays the background. Listen for his more populist works (think Copland) and for his more challenging atonal music. Well worth the time to sit and listen to one of the great minds of our time.
