Notes & Reviews:

Iridescent musical sketches of Spain by Claude Debussy and Manuel de Falla are brought to life by the rich and elegant artistry of pianist, Vanessa Perez. Vanessa Perez is praised for her bold performing style aligned to sensitivity. Conductor Zubin Mehta said of her: "Her level of musical perception and artistic awareness impressed me as much as her total command of the keyboard." Perez's album "Chopin Preludes" reached number 5 on the Classical Billboard Charts. This album, which puts her zeal and passion on display, is sure to gain the attention of music critics and novice music lovers alike.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
This should have been a terrific album, and it is. As I wrote in an ARG review of Vanessa Perez's Telarc recording of the Chopin Preludes, this is a pianist with everything: powerful technique, impeccable taste, and plenty of passion. She rarely pauses to make a point, but when she does it is for a reason. There is always a keen sense of structure; she knows where each piece is going. Here Perez presents an imaginative program of Manuel de Falla pieces juxtaposed with Debussy's "Spanish" works. Debussy's well-known affinity for Spanish colors and idioms is thrown into sharp relief when set against Falla's "real" Spanish works. Steinway & Sons offers stunningly realistic sound. This is a seductive release, not to be missed.
