Elliott Carter kissed me
Happy Birthday to Elliott Carter, 100 today ! And he's still going strong, ever creative. What an inspiration ! At the big Barbican retrospective a few years back, he kissed me. It's a long story, but it says a lot about the man. He's surrounded by bigwigs, the heavies in the industry. But he'll take time out to embrace ordinary folk, who love his music.
