CMNZ presents: Alex Ross with Bianca Andrew & STROMA

Sunday 27th May 2018

THE REST IS NOISE A revelatory exploration into the history of 20th and 21st Century chamber music.

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. 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.
