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.

Would recommend the short piano piece 90+ as an entry to mature Carter - the polyrhythm here is audible as one part is fairly regular with the other kind of twisting around on itself.
