From 100 to 103: The Wisdom of Elliott Carter

In the summer of 2012, Jeff von der Schmidt, Artistic Director of the LA International New Music Festival, visited Elliott Carter at his home in New York City to discuss plans for an all Carter program at REDCAT in Walt Disney Concert Hall on July 15, 2012. The concert featured the West Coast premieres of A Sunbeam’s Architecture, The American Sublime and What Are Years, along with performances of Tintinnabulation and On Conversing With Paradise. In his blog post, von der Schmidt recalls his last meeting with Elliott Carter and on Carter's lasting impact on music.
