Charles Rosen tried and tried to convince me that the piano sonata was a masterpiece...I still don't get it.
At the start of a semester during my Master's in Composition program, the college professor asked my class which composer we'd like to cover. I spoke up and said "Elliott Carter, I find him hard to understand". To which, the prof replied, "So do I"
