A very beautiful album” [...] “Pérez-Espejo showcases an astounding ability to identify himself with the rich Spanish ‘Cancionero’, in its most diverse manifestations, demonstrating tempered sensibility; it is enough to listen attentively to the intimacy and depth with which he performs the sad Nana, the outburst of grace in El Paño Moruno or the dance-inviting elegance in the Jota. The CD ends with various pieces by Sarasate, brilliantly performed” (Martín Llade, Melómano musicmagazine)
