Night Fantasies (1980) — Elliott Carter

Elliott Carter (1908-2012)

I was interested in Elliott Carter’s music when I was first studying music. I was very surprised to find out he was still composing in the 2000’s as I had lost track of him. In fact, he composed his last piece at the age of 103! This is a bit Charles Ives-like, at least it seems so to me.

Five Movements for String Quartet Op5 – Anton Webern

Anton Webern (1883-1945) I’ve previously mentioned that I like the conversational sound of string quartets…This one breaks the mold. This is like a conversation with myself, possibly in the deep woods knowing I and everyone else is ultimately alone in nature. (Webern specifically talked about the “nature” aspect.) Webern is fascinating.
