Musically Speaking at Merkin Hall: Elliott Carter – The First Hundred Years

Sunday evening, Merkin celebrates Elliott Carter’s impending 100th Birthday with  a concert including most of the composer’s wind music, as well as performances of piano music by Ursula Oppens. Frank O’Teri will be interviewing the composer at 7 PM, and a study guide for the event was penned by yours truly. Hope to see some of you there!

  1. Update: It was a wonderful concert. Frank and Elliott had a lively chat beforehand, and Greg Evans from Merkin provided a lovely birthday cake for the afterparty. If anyone’s interested in seeing the study guide, let me know.
