The Rest is Noise

I had the privilege of interviewing writer Alex Ross of The New Yorker last Friday. His new book, The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century, a cultural history of music since 1900, was named one of the top ten books of 2007 by The New York Times and various other publications. He’s a clear and vivid writer, and I will die happy if I ever write something one percent as illuminated and coherent as his book.

At that link, you'll also see that I interviewed two Rochester musicians who have written and staged an original musical based on Jane Austen's novel, Pride and Prejudice. In the show you’ll hear Lindsay Warren Baker, Amanda Jacobs, and producer Lori Bajorek who's working toward the goal of opening on Broadway in 2008. It was a Total Jane Austen Love Fest!
