"Ross has all the attributes of a great professor--passion, rhythm, command--and he employs them on a subject in which most of us desperately need professing: classical music, that mystifying wash of tinkles and swells that has long been the official soundtrack of High Culture."

Reviewer: Geoff Dyer, (New York Times Book Review)

"THE REST IS NOISE is a great achievement. Rilke once wrote of how he learned to stand 'more seeingly' in front of certain paintings. Ross enables us to listen more hearingly."

Reviewer: Alan Rich, (L.A. Weekly)

"[T]he best book on what music is about--REALLY about--that you or I will ever own."
