Born in Barcelona, Guillermo Pérez is an internationally recognized organetto player developing an unusual career in the field of medieval music. His interest in the instrumental repertoires of the 14th and 15th centuries led him to the foundation and artistic direction of the well-known ensemble Tasto Solo performing late-medieval instrumental music on gothic keyboards.
Since 2003, he has been also working regularly with prestigious specialized ensembles including Mala Punica (IT), Micrologus (IT), The Unicorn Ensemble (AU), Diabolus in Musica (FR), De Caelis (FR), Zefiro Torna (BE) or SuperLibrum (NL), recording CDs for Naïve, Ricercar, Zig-Zag Territoires, Passacaille, Aeon and Pneuma labels as well as for radio broadcasting and television (RNE, Radio France, Klara, WDR, RTV Slovenija…). These CDs won several awards, including prizes like “Diapason Découvertes” and “Diapason d’Or de l’Année”. He’s also regularly guest in France Musique programmes.
