When I started doing these videos almost a year and a half ago I didn’t know nearly as much about classical guitars and makers as I did about flamencos, but after hearing hundreds of guitars played by amazing players I feel like I have a pretty good grasp now of what to look for in a classical guitar, too. One of the things I’ve noticed is that I consistently like the Teodoro Perez guitars. Even when comparing them to some of the most expensive and famous guitars around, they always hold their own, and often they’re the players’ top choice.
So, just for fun, I thought I’d do a compilation post of some of the great recordings we’ve done withPerez guitars in the last year or so, and include a little interview with Perez I did at his shop in Madrid.
Here’s Tom Farrell playing Tarrega’s ‘Mazurka en Sol’ on a 2010 ‘Especial’ spruce-top.
And here’s Ed Trybek playing Cadiz from Suite Espagnola by Albeniz on another ‘Especial’ model.
Here’s Almer Imamovic playing a ‘Concierto’ model.
Here’s Duo Solaris, which is Connie Sheu and Scott Wolf, playing a Perez ‘Concierto’ (Scott) and a Contreras 10th Anniversary (Connie).
Here’s Yury Nugmanov playing Sor’s Mozart variations on a ‘Maestro’ spruce-top.
Here’s Jonathan Patterson playing ‘Samba de Orly’ by Toquinho, Chico Buarque & Vinicius de Moraes on a ‘Maestro Especial’.
And here’s Perez himself talking about the perfect guitar.
