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'd like to ask the assembered Carterians how they feel about the 5th quartet. For me, like Babbitt's 5th, it has become some I find really agreeable.
I am not convinced by SQ 5. 3 and 4 are my favourites. Music is an experience. this is mine.
