Notes & Reviews:

When a pianist in his mid-fifties makes his Decca debut release, you can be sure that there is a story attached - and that is certainly the case with Cuban virtuoso, Jorge Luis Prats. Decca's debut CD with Jorge Luis is the live recital he gave in the Sala Mozart, in the new arts center in Zaragoza (northern Spain) for release. The repertoire consists of Granados's Goyescas, Villa-Lobo's Bachiana Brasileira No. 4, Farinas's Alta Gracia, Cervantes's Danzas Cubanas and Lecuona's Malagueña - a program that plays superbly to his strengths and offers a spectacular showcase for the wizardry of this recently-rediscovered giant of the keyboard.

American Record Guide, July / August 2012
Putting the three releases in order, I rank Perez just above Plats and the two of them above Ohlsson. None, though, is bad at all, and some listeners really may prefer the buttoned up studio sound of the Hyperion release. I should mention, though, that none of them made as deep an impression on me as Cristina Ortiz's Goyescas did (May/June 2011). For anyone looking to buy a new recording of this work, I would still recommend her first.
