From a guitar playing standpoint, Tony MacAlpine's 2002 release, Live Insanity, is a fitting album title -- especially with all the sweep picking and other fretboard acrobatics that occur throughout this all-instrumental set. Recorded at the Roxy Theater in Hollywood, CA during 1997, MacAlpine (who also handles keyboard duties, as well) is joined by a rhythm section consisting of bassist Ricky Riccardo and drummer Mike Terrana. The result is a group of tracks that can be neatly categorized into two categories -- a fusion of Steve Vai and Yngwie Malmsteen (the album-opening "The Vision," "Rusalka") or selections that reflect Joe Satriani's gift of six-string phrasing ("The Sage," "Carolina Blue"). Fans of guitar shredding should enjoy Live Insanity, but to the average listener, it all starts to sound the same after a while.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
