Alex Ross

In 1996, at the age of twenty-eight, Alex Ross began his tenure as music critic for The New Yorker. He claims to be nearing completion on Wagner­ism, his next book. “Hitler is dead,” he posted about his progress on his website, “and the story is therefore winding down.” He is the author of The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century (2007) and Listen to This (2011).
