Viva Segovia! features guitarist Roberto Moronn Pérez performing selected works from the Andrés Segovia Archive. Showcasing the best compositions in the Archive from multiple countries.
The genesis for this unique project is a collection of pieces recovered in May 2001 at Segovia’s home in Spain. These pieces were dedicated to Segovia or commissioned by him, involving composers from eight countries. They were subsequently published as The Segovia Archive Series by Edizione Musicale Bèrben.
Guitarist Roberto Moronn Pérez researched these newly recovered works and found some pieces that had never been recorded, and those that had were handicapped by poor visibility in the marketplace and limited distribution. This realization sparked the thought that here was an opportunity. A series of recordings organized around the nationalities of the composers in the Segovia Archive.
Pérez states: “My goal in this recording, as it was in my two previous ones, is to put together a high-quality program of little-known, or in some cases, almost totally neglected gems excluded from the guitar repertoire, and to bring new life to these works, playing with the conviction that this music requires. A man’s music is the key to his character and personality, the reflection of his soul, it is the most authentic representation of the composer who wrote it and also of the musician who interprets it.”
This album was recorded in the lovely acoustics of Holy Trinity Church, Weston, Hertfordshire, U.K. It was produced, recorded and edited by the outstanding U.K. recording engineer John Taylor. Mastering is by Reference Recordings’ own Grammy winning recording engineer Keith O. Johnson.
