Associate professor of music Rob Haskins has been a critic for “The American Record Guide” since 1993. In his newest book, “Classical Listening: Two Decades of Reviews from ‘The American Record Guide,'” he collects hundreds of his reviews for the Guide into one volume. “Classical Listening” provides record collectors, students and scholars, and the general public a resource for understanding the trajectory of classical music recordings over the last two decades.
Haskins, both musicologist and performer, is the author of “John Cage” (2012). He has recorded two CDs for Mode Records, John Cage’s “Two2” with pianist Laurel Karlik Sheehan and Marc Chan’s “My Wounded Head 3.”
