He died in Bethany, Connecticut. He wrote a substantial amount in the "absolute (established) forms", including nine string quartets (1923–1953), several concertos (including one for harpsichord, one for viola, and one for two pianos, the latter work receiving the 1954 Pulitzer Prize for Music), and two symphonies.

His later music while tonal is harmonically and rhythmically acerbic and dissonant. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
