Author Alex Ross hit the golden note, and best-seller lists, with his compelling and revelatory history of twentieth-century music, 'The Rest Is Noise'. A tour-de-force of musicology and social history, Ross dispels the elitist myths surrounding modernist and post-modernist masterpieces, allowing audiences to share in his passion for this repertoire. In partnership with the Auckland Writers Festival, Ross shares the stage with the exquisite mezzo-soprano Bianca Andrew and Aotearoa’s pre-eminent modern music ensemble Stroma. Together they present a musical tasting session that winds through the ages featuring work by Ravel, Bartók, Stravinsky and, of course, the modernist master himself, Schoenberg. http://www.chambermusic.co.nz/whats-on/alex-ross-with-bianca-andrew-stroma
