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. This particular ensemble of Stroma players features a selection of the NZSO’s crème de la crème: Associate Conductor Hamish McKeich, Concertmaster Vesa-Matti Leppänen, and Section Principals Patrick Barry, Bridget Douglas, Ken Ichinose, and Andrew Thomson.

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.
