the critics say
Faucher knows, better than anyone else, how to master the art of transcribing
flamenco into musical language... The pieces are transcribed up to the
slightest detail, with the best attention to detail and care (and great
clearness!)... What makes his musical notation and tablature so outstanding?
First of all the extraordinary clearness of the notation, through the
excellent layout of signs and spaces between notes, and a general aspect
that nothing weighs down. The tablatures as well have a great clearness
as the digits are not ruled by the lines..."
Farke (Akustik Gitarre)
did students of flamenco guitar do before the emergence of Alain Faucher's
transcriptions... Thanks to Alain Faucher, guitarists can now access
the compositions of all the maestros in a clear and accurate system
of tablature and notation."
(Flamenco International Magazine)
this collection (El Arte de Gerardo Nuñez) to be quality production
from every angle... There is adequate and knowledgeable information
regarding the techniques involved and the compositions themselves. I
can categorically say that these transcriptions are some of the most
interesting and exciting flamenco pieces I have had sent my way for
a very long time."
Marsh, Classical Guitar
Faucher has done a simply astounding job of transcribing what is some
of the subtlest flamenco music around (Pepe Habichuela)... The explanatory
notes on sound and technique give great insight into Pepe's unique technique."
Martinez (Classical Guitar Magazine)
