Contemporary Culture • 13 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

This collection of essays by Alex Ross, classical music critic for THE NEW YORKER, covers a wide range of subjects. Not limiting himself to classical music—which he would prefer to call "the music"—Ross discusses Schubert, Bjørk, Verdi, Marian Anderson, music education, Bob Dylan, and more. Narrating his own book, Ross is sincere and fluent, giving a reading that sounds honest and direct. The production has extras that the print book doesn't: more than 30 musical selections, which make it much easier to understand some of Ross's thoughts. For those with eclectic interests in music, this wonderful audiobook by one of today's most perceptive critics is a must-listen. K.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2010]
