    Alex Ross deals in poesy and pseudo-expertise, rather than in actual knowledge. I don't think he can hold a candle to Dave when it comes to actual understanding of most aspects of music. And goodness knows, I hardly agree with Dave all the time -
    but I certainly respect him a lot more than I do Alex Ross.
    For me, Hurwitz rarely explains his comments. I just usually just
    hear that a recording is crap or it's great. As far as what other
    people think or them, this is what I find on the NewYorker website
    about Ross:
    "He is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, a Guggenheim
    Fellowship, and an Arts and Letters Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters". What awards has Hurwitz won for his rantings?
    Youtube likes?
    Did you see what he did towards the end of his recent video upload "Music Chat: Period Performance Practice Is Killing The Classics"?

    As far as I am concerned, what can you expect from a person who made disparaging remarks about the Wesendonck Lieder when he reviewed Marilyn Horne's cd.

    I still haven't forgiven him for THAT etiher.
