Roberto Moronn Perez Reviews:
“Roberto Morron Pérez is a wonderful guitar virtuoso…” —Paul Kennedy, Audiophile Audition
“Roberto Moronn Pérez never puts a foot wrong in his admirable recitals…” —Brian Reinhart, MusicWeb International
“The recording is excellent and allows the listener to lean into Perez’s quiet artistry: following his unfurling guitar lines and the sinuous melodic turns and glowing lyricism of these compositions.” —Nelson Brill, Boston Concert Reviews
“Playing with an assured technique, Perez is very enjoyable – at times, I thought I might be hearing the maestro himself. He has really done his homework: phrasing, contrast, spaciousness, occasional understatement and the sense of hearing a story are all reminiscent of Segovia’s style. This is not to say that this artist has given up his own voice in this process; indeed he has a remarkable ability to interpret this music with certainty and awareness.” —Jim McCutcheon, SoundBoard
“Perez does each man and his work fair justice. He plays with flair but also with nuance and subtlety. His guitar opens up each work and expands it seemingly beyond the limits of a single instrument. …if you are like me you will find each work entertaining, touching, or enlivening as the case may be. …” —John J. Puccio, Classical Candor
