Elliott Carter is regarded one America's greatest composers of classical music of the 20th and 21st century. At the time of this interview in 2010, Elliott Carter was 102 years old. Twice the winner of the Pulitzer Prize, first composer to receive the United States National Medal of Arts, one of the few composers ever awarded Germany's Ernst Von Siemens Music Prize, and in 1988 made "Commandeur dans l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres" by the Government of France, Elliott Carter is internationally recognized as one of the leading American voices of the classical music tradition and was a leading figure of modernism.

Especially impressive is his incredible productivity towards the late phase of his life where he wrote 40 works aged 90-100 and even another 20 works past the age of 100.
