A year after his death at age 103, the ASO pays tribute to Elliott Carter, a life-long New Yorker, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, and one of the greatest composers of the second half of the 20th century. This performance of six orchestral works by the prolific American composer, who published more than 50 of his works after the age of 90, reveals the range and extent of Carter’s inventive genius.

Maestro Leon Botstein shares the stories behind the music in a lively 30-minute Conductor’s Notes Q&A at 1 PM in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage. Free for all ticket holders.
