I first encountered and began to love Elliott Carter's music when I was a teenager with the appearance of his "Variations for Orchestra" in 1958. My continuing astonishment at the brilliance of his creative genius went on until the present day. He was a truly great musical mind, and even at 103+ his passing is a painful loss. Art is the only real immortality and he'll be with us forever through his wonderful works.

I'm so sorry to hear this! My condolences and warm wishes to Elliot Carter's family, friends and fans. He managed to ride the cutting edge well past the age of 100(The serious but fun opera, What Next?). It seems to me that he felt like composition was less work than breathing- if Andy Carvin's interview from the 80's is any indication:

What is your secret to such vitality at 100+ ?! God Bless.
