About this album

Samba Urbano This samba, originally written solely for large guitar, was inspired and conceived in So Paulo, my native city. It is a piece of music that gets its principal elements from the native samba, but treats them in a more contemporary and free way. The ground bass of the first compass creates an ambience for the with slancio which will follow. Even if it is not a descriptive piece of music, it evokes directly the frantic rhythm of the large city. It is written in the form A-B-A. In its central part it contains a slow and contemplative motif, which evokes the quiet dawn in which the free spirits walk solitary through the sleeping city. Imagem Canhoto de Parahiba is a guitarist living in Recife (Northeastern Brazil) who, as the name implies, plays the instrument in an inverted manner. The curious aspect of the way in which he plays the instrument is that he does not also invert the order of the strings, which results in the thumb hitting the high cords, contrary to the normal way in which these would be played. This gives them certain unique timbre characteristics. Imagem is a choro-cano in two parts and shows a unique and profoundly beautiful melody….

Interpretazione: Ottima CD Classica

(...) La musica, dai grandi contrasti emozionali trova un ottima interprete in Marco Pereira (...)

American Record Guide

(...) Pereira is a master of style and emotion. His recital is a find any year, and it would be good to hear more from this excellent player and writer.

Audio & Techniek

(...) Ik moet toegeven, deze cd heeft een hoog easy listening- gehalte, maar is dat af en toe niet heerlijk. Trouwens, de opname kunnen we gerust audiofiel noemen.(...)

Classical Guitar

(...) It's a highly accomplished CD from a remarkably good player. (...)
