  • This event has passed.
Alex Ross, Bianca Andrew and Stroma

Author Alex Ross pulled back the curtain for the masses and hit the 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.

Ticket prices range from $10 – $50 per person.
