In Rome, the AAR Pays Homage to Composers Luigi Nono, Elliott Carter

From The American Academy in Rome:

It’s hard to believe it all happened in the space of just over 25 hours. A 20 January concert on Viale Trinità dei Monti at the French Academy, co-sponsored by the AAR, in homage to composer Luigi Nono (1924-1990). The next evening, on the Gianicolo at the American Academy, a lecture and the opening of an exhibition on Nono’s opera Intolleranza 1960. And a concert at the AAR’s Villa Aurelia in homage to 101 year old Elliott Carter (FAAR’53, RAAR’63, ’69, ‘80), including the European premieres of his Tintinnabulation and Figment V for percussion ensemble.
