William Berger Introduces Our Opera and Film Guests -- Alex Ross
Music critic and commentator has been on the staff of The New Yorker since 1996. The Washington D.C. native and current Los Angeles resident also attended Harvard (where he studied with Peter Lieberson among others and graduated summa cum laude), is a MacArthur Fellow, and the author of the game-changing book The Rest is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century. His new book, Wagnerism: Art and Politics in the Shadow of Music, long-awaited by a passionate public (including me) will be available this fall.
