alan rich can make anyone appreciate classical music, even if you've never listened to more than a few bars of mozart while scanning unfamiliar radio waves. i don't particularly care for classical music - i see it live whenever im offered free tickets, but my collection is not growing - but i started reading rich's columns in the LA weekly a year or so back and fell in love with his prose. [full disclosure; i've since met and become quite good friends with alan].
You can read ten years of Alan Rich's archived writing for LA weekly at

as well as his review of The Soloist by Steve Lopez.
