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.

A beautiful take on a classic song.
