"The disc's nineteen tracks cover an impossible range of etudes and preludes from composers as varied as Bach (Prelude in C), Villa-Lobos (Prelude in E minor), Sor (Estudio in A major), Satie (Gymnopedie no. 1), Carcassi (Etude in A), and Tarrega (Una Vision en la Torre del Diablo). The ambitiousness of the featured selections may have been dangerous for other artists, but, thanks to his unique, eloquent interpretations, Pearce pulls it all elegantly off and never disappoints. The impressive quality of the disc is
magnified by close mic techniques, which capture Pearce's prowess as a live performer and make the listener feel as if s/he's sitting with him.
You'll gasp, pant, and possibly even ecstatically moan when you hear how his magic fingers strum and ever so gently pluck his guitar strings."
