The secret sauce is the punk rock spirit - Album Review
Check out this short and sweet review of McEncroe's latest album "My Symphonic Poems". Chris Spector of Midwest Record online writes:
The secret sauce behind this double CD of well played, well written contemporary classical is the punk rock spirit lurking under the surface. Not classical trained and not wanting to make a statement, McEncroe is only concerned with making music that speaks to him. With the Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra bringing his notes to life, this set could easily pass for something from Living Stereo or Masterworks that your grand dad over looked once upon a time. You can feel some John Williams as well. This rapturous set is a clear cut victory for single mindedness. A winner throughout.
