Elliott Carter, 103

I’m glad I read below the fold on today’s NY Times website. Because down below all the big election news, down in the arts section, was the simple headline: “Master of Complexity” and a photo of Elliott Carter. It could only mean one thing.

At age 103, Elliott Carter has finally passed away. The Times obit stresses the fact that he continued composing throughout his life and was present not only at his own centennial birthday, but at a few celebratory concerts in the years afterwards.

RIP, you badass. Here’s the Times‘ obituary.
