Recordings in the form of a DVD recital has been a welcome innovation in recent times. One such recital I recently caught up with is Carlos Perez , recorded at the beautiful Parish of Santa Filomena, in Santiago, Chile.

The theme of his recital is music from Renaissance era, across the ages to modern. The works of guitar masters of 20th century Barrios and Brouwer standing up well alongside Baroque and Renaissance masters Bach and Dowland. That Carlos Perez is a guitarist of the highest class, both technically and interpretive is evident right from the opening notes of John Dowland, who's music is represented on this disc in the form of La Mia Barbera and the jaunty dance My Lady Hudson's Puffe. Perez tone is warm, with clear dynamics and tasteful phrasing.

There follows the complete Bach suite BWV 1006a. It's not exactly typical for guitarists to play entire Bach suites, in concerts or recordings, many prefer to choose one movement from one of two suites, akin to what Julian Bream calls "meringues and lollipops, instead of meat and potato's", meaning giving the audience the smash hits of a Bach suite instead of the suite in it's entirety. It's therefore lovely to hear the famous prelude and Gavotte en Rondeau played within context. Perez plays the Gavotte in particular, within context to Baroque ornamentation, as opposed to some guitaristic versions we hear of this work, with glissandi and spread chords.

Perez then plays Johann Mertz beautiful Elegy, a work of passion and brilliant arpeggio technique. Next come four traditional Chilean pieces, which Perez plays in their natural idiom, Latin rhythms sparkling with charm and buoyancy.

Cuban composer Leo Brouwer is next, his sonata featuring Fandangos y Boleros, Sarabande and Toccata.
