This book took me way too long to read which is a little strange because I found it very interesting and uite inspiring I m tempted to give it five stars but I m too much of a dilettante when it comes to cough serious music to not necessarily take everything that the author is saying at face value I do The Mark of Cain have two complaints about the books though the first is that the author clearly dislikes the one of the few people I probably do count as an actualero of mine I don t Les Chevaliers du Zodiaque : St Seiya, tome 27 hold it strongly againstim that Found in Translation he finds Adorno to what s the word not necessarily wrong but some kind of extremist snob for lack of a better word Every time Adorno makes an appearance on these pagese comes across like a rapid attack dog of anti everything except for strict Schoenberg non mass appeal Which might be true I ve never really delved into Folktales from the Moose of Burkina Faso his music writings too deeply but the picture ofim as an enfant terrible is I like a bit of a cartoonish exaggeration The second complaint I would Jeou p'ou t'ouan ou la chair comme tapis de prire have of the book is that it kind of stops short of being aistory of 20th century music and kind of peters out around 1976 with Reich s Music for 18 Musicians A few other composers are talked about and works that they release in the same year but all talk of the last uarter of the century is treated in a very fragmentary and stilted manner Maybe there isn t much to talk about but the style of the book changes in the last fifty pages or so in a way that makes the very end of the book read like a series of notes the author made on a Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus handful of composers and records In this last section there are also name droppings of pop artists like Radiohead Sonic Youth and Bjork which pulls together theistory of serious music with pop music but without doing much than dropping the names in the swirl of the kind of chaotic finish The author also uses the phrase moshpit of the mind which is almost totally inexcusable in the context it s given in and actually shouldn t be used by anyone It s moments like that which seem to make the author trying to ard to sound ip but there isn t anything Do No Harm hip about using the word moshpit and really the only people who would ever say something like that are someone s dad whoeard the word and thinks it s what with it people are saying I can t The Poseidon Adventure hold this against the author too strongly thoughAll in all I really enjoyed this book and it s treatment of pre World War 2 music especially in Germany was very informative to me Iave a feeling that anyone seriously into modern music will find the book to be missing some of their favorites or think the book treats certain movements too uickly but as a general overview of a chaotic century s musical trends this book seems to do it s job just fine I think this book is best read and listened to at the same time it really adds to it As such I created a Youtube playlist to go along with your read which you can find How to Stop Drinking Alcohol and End Drug Addiction here you re looking for a listen with better sound uality and don t mind finding them yourselves I can t blame you thenere is the list of songs that I thought captured the bookRichard Strauss Also Sprach ZarathustraGustav Mahler Symphony No 8Claude Debussy Arabesue IClaude Debussy Prelude to the Afternoon of a FaunArnold Schoenberg Verkl rte NachtAnton Webern Six Pieces for OrchestraIgor Stravinsky Rite of SpringDarius Milhaud ScaramoucheWill Marion Cook Swing AlongCharles Ives The Unanswered uestionGeorge Gershwin Rhapsody in BlueJean Sibelius Symphony No 2 Paul Hindemith Sonate per viola e pianoforteLouis Armstrong Mack the KnifeArnold Schoenberg JakobsleiterAlban Berg Lulu SuiteDmitri Shostakovich Symphony No 5Aaron Copland Appalachian SpringJohn Cage Music of ChangesKarlheinz Stockhausen TelemusikBenjamin Britten Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes Olivier Messiaen uartet for the End of TimeMorton Feldman Rothko ChapelJohn Adams Common Tones in Simple Time This isn t something I say lightly but pretty much everyone should consider reading Alex Ross The Rest Is Noise Why Because a it makes for a riveting work of political and cultural istory and b it provides a layman s entry point into that most venerable of Western art forms classical musicI first became acuainted with this book in my late teens By that time I d already immersed myself uite eavily in free jazz noise and the like But classical music especially the 20th century variety ad thus far eluded my understanding Like many otherwise adventurous young listeners I felt overwhelmed by the plethora of composers performers and recordings to choose from And in this regard avant jazz was comparatively speaking pretty straightforward all of composers performers and recordings to choose from And in this regard avant jazz was comparatively speaking pretty straightforward all needed to do was track yourself down a copy of Interstellar Space or Free Jazz or Spiritual Unity With composed music the problem was knowing where the ell you should even startEnter The Rest Is Noise Over the course of fifteen chapters which trace the development of modern classical from Strauss and Mahler up until the present age Ross examines the seminal musical works of the 20th century as well as The Social And Political social and political that birthed them It s all terribly fascinating stuff But The Kindest Lie history only makes up one side of the coin and the book concludes with a list of recommended recordings a comprehe. The Rest Is Noise Listening to the Twentieth Century is a voyage into the labyrinth of modern music which remains an obscure world for most people While paintings of Picasso and Jackson Pollock sell for aundred million dollars or and lines from T S Eliot are uoted on the yearbook pages of alienated teenagers across the land twentieth century classical music still sends ripples of unease through audiences At the same time its influence can be felt everywhere Atonal chords crop up in jazz Avant garde sounds populate the soundtracks of Hollywood thrill.
