Introducing Milton Babbitt

As a sophomore in college this is one of the documentaries, along with “Glass: A Portrait of Philip in Twelve Parts,” that really inspired me to think seriously about art music composition. There isn’t much that I can write about Babbitt that will add much to this documentary without going into the actual theory and beginnings of his music. Though, I probably wouldn’t do him much justice with that either. So I’ll let this eccentric doc attempt to do the talking if you’re open enough to really give this film a viewing.
