Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Edward Rothstein is a music critic and composer who supports the idea that music may be linked in a distant way to physical and mathematical ideas such as string theory. One of his books that explores this notion is Emblems of Mind: The Inner Life of Music and Mathematics.

Rothstein has worked as a music critic for The New Republic and as the chief music critic for The New York Times. He is currently the cultural critic-at-large for the Times.[1]

He holds a B.A. from Yale University (1973), an M.A. in English literature from Columbia University, and a Ph.D. from the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago (1994). In addition, Rothstein did graduate work in mathematics at Brandeis University.

He is a two-time winner of the ASCAP Deems-Taylor Award for music criticism, was named a Guggenheim Fellow in 1991, and has been awarded a doctorate from the Committee on Social Thought at the University of Chicago.
