Favourite work by Elliott Carter

I found his 2nd Quartet to be quite expressive. What is your absolute favourite, or if you can't choose 2 or 3? I will give them a try, even if I did already before. Write a bit about it if you could.

I think the majority of Carter I don't particularly like. But listening again to his Concerto for Orchestra, it really connected, I always felt there was something in it just beyond my grasp. I also found his violin concerto ( which I don't recall ever listening to) quite expressive and exotic.
