- Steve Hicken unpacks a key element of "The Composer as Specialist."
- Read Frank Oteri's 2001 interview with Babbitt (h/t Alex Ross, who linked to it a few days ago).
- Alex links to Babbitt: Portrait of a Serial Composer, a film about Babbitt by the late Robert Hilferty.
- Andrew Patner also discusses the film.
- Elaine Fine reproduces and quotes a touching letter to Bernard Zaslav from Babbitt.
- Elaine also posts the recording that Babbitt wrote to Zaslav about the (release, after 35 years in the can!) of the Zaslav Duo's 1970 recording of a Babbitt piece.
- Tim Rutherford-Johnson has a personal obit.
- Tim also links to a fine Greg Sandow article about Babbitt, published in 1982. (Would that Greg were writing more of this sort of thing and spending less time advocating use of Twitter during concerts!)
