Exactly Like This Is More Than A Good Title - “Exactly Like This” is more than just the title of Doug MacLeod's new recording says radio host Ian McHugh: “Doug MacLeod is a man who understands that performance is the cornerstone of music. He gets the fact that no matter what studio trickery is involved, what instruments are played and all the other ephemera that other musicians obsess over means nothing if a song isn’t delivered with soul, commitment and honesty. It was... http://ow.ly/2WTznC

Bruckner an All Music Editor's Choice - Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony's Bruckner recording is a March All Music Editor's Choice! “Honeck gives this live performance a rather expansive interpretation, emphasizing the long sweep of melody and using a fair amount of rubato in his tempos to add dramatic shading, particularly by drawing out cadences for their full emotional effect. The orchestra is prepared for all of Honeck's gradations and nuances, and it is r... http://ow.ly/2Wu0ku
