This is a delightful recent interview between Pulitzer-wining composer Elliott Carter and cellist Alisa Weilerstein. She has just released a Decca recording of his Cello Concerto, and he listens to her play a bit of it. Though he claims he's growing deaf and won't offer a critique, Carter goes ahead and gives her several tips on playing the difficult cello part.

Carter died Monday at 103 in Manhattan.The New York Times ran this obituary. This is very likely Carter's last appearance on a video.
