In one word: Fantastic ! Thank you very much Jean-Luc
This is a superb recording in every aspect, and as far as the preludes go, they are for me, a long time guitar aficionado, definitive.

Due to a short “buzz” noise, maybe caused while saving, please DL the file named “fixedB3” and replace the track B3
There are lots of recordings of the etudes and preludes by Villa-Lobos. Most of them copy the style of Julian Bream. Listeners do not always realize how important the performer is in defining a work. Pieces like these can be interpreted in an infinite variety of ways. Bream set our ears to hear them this way, and most performers would be hard-pressed to imagine them any other way. One feels as if Bream found the path through the Villa-Lobos jungle that leads to Amazonian Nirvana. It’s a tremendous accomplishment, and one for which I rarely hear Bream credited. These have been hard to find. I recommend them to anyone who is studying these works, and to anyone who just wants to treat their ears and their souls to the pure luxury of Villa-Lobos’s special brand of genius, performed by the REAL master of the guitar.

If You hear some clicks and pops here and there, Who cares?
Id rather have a few light anomalies instead of destroying the music.
Enjoy the music, not the ticks & pops.
I tend more and more, in the last time, to de-click with an automatic setting between 0.7 and 1.2 so you can say, my rips are like half rough rips.
