Get Carter! Weekend in LondonGet Carter! Weekend in London
Friday 13 - Sunday 15 January
The BBC Symphony Orchestra's 2006 January Composer Weekend at the Barbican in London focuses on the influential American composer Elliott Carter, with three days of concerts, talks and films devoted to Carter's work, life and times.
Celebrating his 97th birthday in 2005 Elliott Carter has been composing for nearly 70 years. This weekend explores the gamut of his work, from such early miniatures as Harvest Home, written in 1937, to Of Rewaking, his acclaimed 2002 song-cycle. There will also be music by composers who were his friends and heroes including Ives, Stravinsky, Bartˇk, Copland, Sessions and Matthews.
