The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century by Alex Ross
The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century

Mitzi, January 18, 2008

If you are interested in the world of classical music, including those composers not yet dead, then you'll enjoy Mr. Ross' tour de force. Classical music, by the author's definition, did not stop with the death of Beethoven. There are many contemporary/20th Century composers who are creating very listenable music. The problem, according to Ross, is that the very term Classical has frozen the concept in time. This chill has made it difficult if not impossible for contemporary composers to break through into popular consciousness. If you are a fan of mr. Ross' weekly column in the New Yorker, then this is a must read.
