Feast of Music.
Elliott Carter isn't the only active centenarian artist. As the film critic Nathan Lee pointed out to me, the Portuguese director Manoel de Oliveira, who made at least one film a year throughout his nineties, turned one hundred a day after Carter. If Carter seems around eighty, this recent video interview with Oliveira shows a man who, amazingly, looks around sixty-five. Perhaps Carter and Oliveira can work together . . . .
Update (12/15): Justin Davidson notes that the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer turned 101 today. What is it about mid-December?
