The music critic Alan Rich died on Friday at 85, after a long career writing for many of the country's respected publications, from Variety to the New York Times. John Rockwell posts a tribute. For those who don't know Rich's work, this fairly recent posting from his blog, aptly titled "This Lifetime," and ranging at a leisurely yet not verbose pace from Lou Harrison to Johannes Brahms, is a fine introduction; his book, "So I've Heard," is the next step. It's writing you want to read, whether you've heard the music in question or not.
