Music critic for the New Yorker since 1996, Alex Ross is the author of the international bestseller The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century. A trip down the rabbit hole of modern sound’s biggest moments and personalities, it won the 2007 National Book Critics Circle Award and was a Pulitzer Prize finalist.

A 2008 MacArthur Fellow and a 2015 Guggenheim Fellow, he is the recipient of the ASCAP Deems Taylor Award and a Letter of Distinction from the American Music Center for his contributions to contemporary music. His latest book examines Richard Wagner’s soaring music, vile politics, and complicated legacy.
