I don't think that's a fair criticism of Carter. I assume you intentionally used a lowercase r romantic. I get that it's a bit off topic but I think you could just as easily say that the composers you're favoring use extreme dissonance as a crutch. That's certainly NOT my opinion. I'm just pointing out they Carter fills a very important place in the 20th C. Different composers brought different elements to the table. Carter's music is dissonant and lyrical and definitely very important.

No, I just mean in the context of this thread. He's usually too romantically lyrical for me, to be "hard edged". I certainly like his music a lot, don't get me wrong. I don't doubt his importance either

I get you. Yeah I knew I was flying off topic.

I know Carter got a lot of love, especially when he turned 100 but I still feel like he's under appreciated. I'm pretty sure you know more about him than I do so I shouldn't be lecturing. He's my dude lol.

DON'T **** WITH ELLIOTT CARTER!!!

The perfect blend of aggressive Vareseian percussion, Messiaen-esque organ and Japanese music!

Yes, he is underappreciated in general, spread the love/word!

Dude if I lose my job and home please house me. I won't say a word. I'll clean your place. And I'll definitely let you choose the music!

You don't have to do anything so drastic once I get my "rodcast" going again this summer. I can set up a playlist just for you.
