Happy birthday, Elliott Carter

"Not many composers will ever celebrate their 103rd birthday – but then, not that many people in the history of humanity have ever reached or will ever reach that astonishingly advanced prime number of an age. But no one has ever marked their 103rd, I can confidently predict, with three world premieres. But in New York last weekend, that's exactly what Elliott Carter did with concerts on 8 and 11 December."

Check out scores and recordings of Carter's works from the UW Libraries.
