Elliot Carter meets Phil Lesh

Counterstream Radio (in conjunction with American Music Center) now presents a wonderful, fascinating interview with Phil Lesh (formerly of the Grateful Dead) and composer Elliot Carter (gearing up for numerous 100th birthday celebrations), which was done last November. Lesh had studied classical music pre-Dead and has been a booster ever since then. Carter talks about, among other things, how jazz influenced his composing style. You can hear the program at this site.
