• Gyorgy Ligeti: Mysteries of the Macabre


    Superb performance of György Ligeti's Mysteries of the Macabre by the formidable Barbara Hannigan and the Gothenburg Symphony.

  • Alex Ross: The Rest Is Noise


    The Rest Is Noise provides an excellent overview of 20th century classical music. It is also a joy to read. I'm glad that I finally came around to reading it and now wish I had done so earlier.

  • Burial's Untrue: The making of a masterpiece


    Mini documentary about the creative process behind one of electronic music's most mysterious classics. It's also one of my favourite albums.
