Ian Bostridge's review of The Rest Is Noise

I concur with Charles Noble's recent posting about the brilliant review that Ian Bostridge, wrote in The Times Lieterary Supplement of Alex Ross'"The Rest Is Noise." Bostridge, a world-class singer who also has a Phd from Oxford University, eloquently summarizes and distills the central points of this amazing book and recommends it to anyone who wants to understand why classical music is where it is today.

If you don't have time to digest "The Rest Is Noise," then please take a few minutes to read Bostridge's review.
