'Though the tall, dark, devastatingly handsome guitarist Greg Pearce has yet to master certain tasks (eg, performing tricks on swinging trapezes, breakdancing, and making palatable omelets), there's no arguing with the fact that, as far as music is concerned, there's nothing this artist can't do. His debut classical CD, 'Sometime in April', offers proof that his formidable skill as a musician is not limited to any particular style or genre: Rather, he makes a startlingly adept transition to classical guitar from the rock and jazz guitar-playing for which he is known and envied. 'The disc's nineteen tracks cover an impossible range of etudes and preludes from composers as varied as Bach (Prelude in C), Villa-Lobos (Prelude in E minor), Sor (Estudio in A major), Satie (Gymnopedie no. 1), Carcassi (Etude in A), and Tarrega (Una Vision en la Torre del Diablo). The ambitiousness of the featured selections may have been dangerous for other artists, but, thanks to his unique, eloquent interpretations, Pearce pulls it all elegantly off and never disappoints. The impressive quality of the disc is magnified by close mic techniques, which capture Pearce's prowess as a live performer and make the listener feel as if s/he's sitting with him. You'll gasp, pant, and possibly even ecstatically moan when you hear how his magic fingers strum and ever so gently pluck his guitar strings.' by Melinda Perch This CD is a compilation of classical pieces which was recorded in April, 2001.
