The Rest is Noise

Reading time: 1 min.

In January 2013, the Southbank Centre will launch a year-long festival based on Alex Ross' book The Rest is Noise, with the aim to tell the story of 20th century music. In anticipation of the festival, The Guardian has asked various artists about their favourite classical works. It’s good to see pieces by Stockhausen, Reich, Berg, Schönberg, and Webern among the influences mentioned.
