Perez has vast experience traveling through Europe and the United States, exposing his intense talent on the wooden instrument. In 2003 he conducted a series of six concerts in Germany and Austria where he had tremendous appraisal at the piano concerto in Himmelkron Castle in Bayreuth. In Austria he was soloist for the St. Oswald-Moderbrugg band and also interpreted pieces by Mozart, Albéniz, Liszt and Rachmaninoff.
Musical experts agree that Samuel Pérez will soon be recognized as the world's most outstanding interpreter of Franz Liszt. After a highly impressive career including over 2,000 performances in 19 countries, Sanromá chose Pérez, his protégé, as his heir in furthering his goal of restoring life to classical music.
