Influential American serialist composer Milton Babbitt passed away on January 29th, 2011 at the age of 94. On February 1, 2011 WKCR took a moment to look back on some of the composer's better known works, as well as to present an array of interviews recorded with Babbitt himself, and those who knew him as a colleague and friend. We hope you, the listener, will regard this playlist as a modest homage to the artist.

On Ives's piano sonata, we heard William Masselos on piano.
Crawford's violin and piano piece was performed by Ida Kavafian on violin and Vivian Fine on piano.
The Cowell symphony was performed by the Iceland Symphony Orchestra.
On Harrison's song cycle, "Strict Songs," the voice of Leroy Kromm, baritone, was heard alongside the USCSC Chamber Singers and Chamber Orchestra.
