|'Kodály's Unaccompanied Sonata provides one of the great tests for the technique of cellists, and Pereira is not found wanting ... the virtuoso elements are all there to enjoy.'|
David Denton, The Strad (UK), August 1993
'(Pereira) produces a huge modern sound which ... is perfectly appropriate in his breathtaking account of the Kodály Sonata ... which really is exceptionally well played and faithfully recorded ... '
'Bach's fifth suite presents Pereira's credentials in one of the works that forms the basis of the solo cello repertory; and these credentials prove to be boldly, forthrightly stated, with nothing half-hearted in the dynamic size of the performance or the assurance and skill of the phrasing ... Kodály's Sonata is the climax of the recording.'
Roger Covell, Sydney Morning Herald, March 1993
'Very distinguished is Pereira's passionate exposition of the Kodály Sonata; its rhapsodic muscularity and richness suits the cellist very well.'
Cyrus Meher-Homji, Soundscapes, July 1993
