RIP Elliott Carter

Another great composer has passed away. Elliott Carter died today at the age of 103. I always got the impression this great man could live forever. It is very sad indeed.

Carter was one of the most productive composers, especially in his later years (publishing more than 40 works just between the ages of 90-100) and won the Pulitzer Prize twice.

I will leave you to listen to his 2nd String Quartet.
