Time flies...


Last Tuesday was the first anniversary of Elliott Carter's death.  Yesterday I came across a live recording of the all-Carter "Memorial Concert" which took place last January at New York City's club Le Poisson Rouge.  The bitrate of the captured webcast is humble, but the list of musicians includes some of the most illustrious advocates of Carter's music.
