THE REST IS NOISE: LISTENING TO THE TWENTIETH CENTURY

Ross, Alex

New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2007. First Edition. First Printing.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine Dust Jacket.. New York City, NY: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 2007. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. First Edition/First Printing. 625 pages. The author's breakthrough debut book. One of the best books on music ever published in our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only that sold out shortly after publication. "Autographed Copy" round white sticker pasted in front. The First Edition is now rare. Presents Alex Ross' "The Rest Is Noise: Listening To The Twentieth Century". His "ear-opening" perspective on a still-contentious subject, the "classical" music of our time. "A whirlwind tour, from the Viennese premiere of Richard Strauss' 'Salome' in 1906 to Minimalist Steve Reich's downtown Manhattan apartment. The wide-ranging historical material is organized in thematic essays grounded in personalities and places, in a disarmingly comprehensive style. Thus, composers who led dramatic lives, such as Shostakovich's struggles under the Soviet Regime, make for gripping reading, but Ross treats each composer with equal gravitas. The real strength of this study, however, lies in his detailed musical analysis, teasing out, in precise but readily accessible language, the notes that link Leonard Bernstein's 'West Side Story' to Arnold Schoenberg's avant-garde compositions or hint at a connection between Sibelius and John Coltrane. Among the many notable passages, a close reading of Benjamin Britten's opera 'Peter Grimes' stands out for its masterful blend of artistic and biographical insight. Even avid fans will find themselves hearing familiar favorites with new ears" (Publisher's blurb) . "Reads like a sprawling, intense novel, one of utopian dreams, doom, and consolation, with the most extraordinary cast of characters. A great, inspiring ride" (Osvaldo Golijov) . Currently the Resident Music Critic of The New Yorker Magazine, Alex Ross succeeded not one but two of the greatest music critics we shall ever read: Andrew Porter and Paul Griffiths, both Brits. His essays are among the reasons The New Yorker Magazine remains not only relevant but necessary reading, nothing less than one of contemporary life's civilized pleasures. An absolute "must-have" title for Alex Ross collectors. <b><i> This Autographed Copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black ink-pen on the title page by Alex Ross. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is a great book. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online are subsequent printings or have serious flaws. A rare signed copy thus. </b></i> Lavishly illustrated with vintage photographs. Winner of the MacArthur Genius Grant in 2008. One of the finest American writers of our time. A fine collectible copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ALEX ROSS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG). ISBN 0374249393.

The rest is noise: A l'écoute du XXe siècle. La modernité en musique. (Musique)

Alex ROSS

Actes Sud, 2010. 14 cm X 20.5 cm. De la Vienne impériale de Mahler et Strauss au Paris des Années folles et du groupe des Six, de l’Allemagne d'Hitler à l’Union soviétique de Staline, Chostakovitch et Prokofiev, des avant-gardes les plus radicales de l’après-guerre à l’Amérique des ”sixties” et des ”seventies”, Alex Ross retrace avec brio la grande aventure de la musique moderne. Au fil des guerres chaudes et froides, des révolutions et des conservatismes, de l’élitisme de la Seconde Ecole de Vienne à l’avènement de la culture de masse, c’est véritablement l’histoire du XXe siècle par sa musique qu’il nous donne à entendre. Son credo : parler de la musique classique comme si elle était universellement populaire, et de la musique populaire comme si elle accédait enfin à l’intemporalité de ce qui est ”classique”.. Livre
