really liked it
bookshelves: music

I'm not sure what is more impressive: Ross's erudition and clear understanding of the arc of classical music through the 20th century or his ability to render a vast, complex musical history into a compelling narrative. I read *The Rest is Noise* like a novel, barely able to put it down for want of knowing what happens next. A wonderful, and incredibly useful and appealing text.
