Review of Percursos by Prof. Joan Sommers:
Thanks to Accordions Worldwide at www.accordions.com for allowing this CD Review to be reproduced.

Paulo Jorge Ferreira has recorded a very nice collection of pieces, both original and transcribed, for the accordion, an instrument for which he obviously has a great feeling!

The music is interesting and quite well performed; it provides many different sounds and styles for the player to exhibit his technical and musical aptitude as well as the instrument's great possibilities. Indeed, his technique is very clean and accurate in both hands and is captured well by the recording technicians of this CD, something not always so apparent in the studio!

Paulo Jorge Ferreira also shows his own gifts for arranging and composing for the accordion. He lectures in the Applied Arts Superior School in Castelo Branco.

For me, well, I have my favorite pieces but you will need to listen for yourself and select your own! The CD is worth your time and expense to take this Percursos (journey).

You will enjoy it.

Paulo Jorge Ferreira was born in Lisbon in 1966. He began his musical studies at the age of five with professor José António Sousa. The deep study dedicated to the accordion, with his qualified professor, gave him the opportunity of participating in national and international contests, achieving distinguished classifications. Along his musical learning he attended seminaries directed by some of the most prestigious contemporary accordionists.His accordion course was accomplished in Matono Musical Institute, having posteriorly finished his superior studies in the Castelo Branco Superior School of Applied Arts.

He has performed concerts both national and internationally, namely in France, Mexico, Belgium, Austria, Italy, Macau, Spain and Hungary, and chamber music concerts, playing with highly honoured musicians such as the pianist Maria João Pires and Maestro António Victorino d’Almeida, among others.
