Notes:

Signed by the author in black ink on the title page. The follow-up to the award winning bestseller 'The Rest Is Noise'. In Listen To This Ross, the music critic for the New Yorker, looks both backwards and forwards in time, capturing essential figures and ideas in classical music history, as well as giving an alternative view of recent pop music that emphasises the power of the individual musical voice. Includes essays covering Schubert, Verdi and Brahms and in-depth interviews with modern pop masters such as Bjork and Radiohead, through to music students at a Newark high school and indie-rock hipsters in Beijing.
