Alex Ross has heard it all, from Beethoven to Bjork. The music critic from the New Yorker trains our ears in his new book Listen to This, and you can listen to him. Guest host Frank Stoltze talks with the author and MacArthur genius about music—what it is, why we like (or hate) it and what it says about us.

Alex Ross, music critic and writer for The New Yorker; his was a 2009 MacArthu Genius Award recipient and the author of The Rest is Noise : Listening to the Twentieth Century, a cultural history of music since 1900. His latest book is Listen to This.
