I love modern classical music.  Two of my favorite composers were born 100 years ago: Olivier Messiaen (who died at 83) and Elliott Carter, who's still alive and composing.  Carter is now the oldest published composer in history, a record he took from Leo Ornstein, whose son Severo became a computer scientist and worked at Wash. U.  Hello small world!

By the way, I'm not the only one who feels the way I do about year pronunciation in the new century.
