Notes & Reviews:

The second album in this important and unique series, this time showcasing the French composers! The Archive consists of pieces 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. The album was recorded by John Taylor in the lovely acoustics of Holy Trinity Church, Weston, Hertfordshire, UK, and mastered by Grammy®-winning engineer and audiophile legend Keith O. Johnson.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The playing of Perez and Brignolo is superb, and they take a rather similar approach, with Perez somewhat more assertive. Timings are very close; the few pieces with significant differences are accounted for by repeats. Your choice will depend on whether you want the lot all at once or in one-disc volumes, assuming Perez continues the project. Price may be a factor - the Brilliant set is an amazing bargain, seven discs for around $30. Perez is just over $12 for the single disc. Given that, and the fact the the sound and playing are both of such high quality.
