Music critic at The New Yorker since 1996, Ross translates abstract sounds into prose rich with historical depth and artistic insight. His first book, The Rest is Noise, won the 2007 National Book Critics Circle Award; his new book gathers a selection of his wide-ranging essays on music from the Western classical tradition to contemporary pop, and includes concert reviews, interviews with musicians, profiles of performers, and meditations on the meanings of music.
