Elliott Carter

December 11, 1908 - November 5, 2012
born in New York, NY, composed during the Contemporary period
Elliott Carter (1908 - 2012) was an American composer whose rigorous music began in a tonal idiom, but developed into a highly personal style involving atonality, metric modulations, and the use of time and drama in his works. Carter's early music resembled a fusion of Stravinsky's neo-Classicism and Copland's American vernacular style, but by the 1950s he was composing in his own manner, as represented by the String Quartet No. 1, then later by such dense works as the Double Concerto, A Symphony of Three Orchestras, and the Concerto for Orchestra. Carter continued to compose past age 100. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

Carter is among a small cadre of great 20th century American Composers.
It is a crime that the media as well as concert artists don't play his great music more often. The same can be said of the music of Bartok.
Absolutely does it for me .... Wakes my senses each and every time. (Cee Rex)
I suspect many people here think of Carter as sedate because their first exposure to his music might be to the First Symphony on Pandora. If so, it'll be fun to know what they think when they hear Carter's mature style, which is anything but sedate or easy!
Elliot Carter's music is in a class by itself. He at once provides deeply passionate and expressive lines while constructing an architecture of pitches, rhythms, and registers that leaves those of us to whom music is more than simply "nice sounds" with our heads spinning because he's capable of juggling so many things at once. A unique and valuable part of America's music history. The DEAN of American composers!
Sedative?
stimulating and nicely sedative.... .
Moving and magical
