Notes and Editorial Reviews
Guitar transcription recordings are a dime a dozen—virtually every guitarist necessarily traffics in this kind of repertoire because of the dearth of concert-worthy indigenous repertoire for the instrument. Not that this is a bad thing, especially when given attention by an artist such as French guitarist Judicaël Perroy, whose articulation is uncommonly clear, while his phrasing and sense of line draws the ear in, warmly, seductively, making Bach’s Partita No. 2 sound as if originally written for his instrument, not the keyboard. Which is just what we want if we’re going to spend more than an hour listening to a guitar recital. The arrangements here are first rate, and Perroy’s conception of Vivaldi’s D major violin concerto is just
spectacular. The production, by Canada’s premier team of Norbert Kraft and Bonnie Silver, is terrific. If you like guitar music, you'll love this.
