Milton Babbitt, 1916-2011

January 30, 2011

American composer Milton Babbitt died yesterday at the age of 94.



I admit I don't know a ton about him, and I don't listen to a lot of his music, but I do know that his influence on contemporary "art music" has been great. (And we share the same birthday -- May 10.) So I thought today would be a good day to learn some more about Babbitt and why he was known as such a pioneer in several aspects of music. Below is a short article with a nice summary of Babbitt's life and career, followed by a link to an extensive interview of Babbitt that really gives the reader a good sense of what this man was all about.
