The Recording Academy Statement® Re: Elliott Carter

“GRAMMY® winner and Recording Academy Trustees Award recipient Elliott Carter was a brilliant composer whose compositions helped define a uniquely American sound in the 20th century. His musically complex works have been performed by symphonies around the world and his career as both a music creator and educator will leave a lasting legacy for those who follow. He was a consummate talent who will be profoundly missed, and our thoughts and condolences go out to his family, friends and fans throughout the world.”
