ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Alexandria is a place where many souls dwell,

spirits who sail bearing storms and calm days.

The Bride of the Sea, nurturing mother and confidant friend.

We Alexandrians live in this realm of glory so frail.

Yet Alexandria is everywhere and Alexandrian is every man.”

Fernando Pérez



Fernando Perez composed Alexandria during his life in the city before and during the 2011 egyptian revolution.

After years living in the historic city Mr. Perez wanted to write a musical work that reflected the deepest and most spiritual side of Alexandrians.

The first part has several movements which reflect all these along with Perez personality and touch.

The Second part is a collection of guitar solo pieces composed inspired in different places around the city and using the flavour of the different cultures which have enriched Alexandria since long ago.



1-The Path - At the gates of twilight we discover a trail leading us away, into a world of wonder, back to simplicity and magic.

2-Heavenly - Reaching blue skies with white clouds of purity in a holy day when the wind blows fresh.

3-Rain Coming - Autumn is arriving with a curtain of raindrops sweeping from the sea into the city.

4-The Storm - CLeanses everywhere, pruning our faults from blame.

5-Pharos Canon - Only while lost in a sea of toil, the world taking over our souls, we find the light that leads us home.

6-Alexandrian Waltz - With steps of celebration we rejoice for again one life´s adventure we have overcome.

Solo Guitar

7-Paseo Flamenco - An Spaniard around Alexandrian alleys.

8-El Ionani - Inspired during the nights at the Greek club in Ibrahimiya.

9-Alexandrian Waltz - The European capital in the Middle East.

10-Greek Rebetiko - The Greek flavour still present in town.

Bonus Track

11-Rumba Alexandrina - Performed live in the Bibliotheca of Alexandria Auditorium, a rumba dedicated to Alexandrians.


The musical work was premiered at the Alexandria International Festival and again presented as a farewell concert by Fernando Perez when the artist decided to leave the country during the 2011 egyptian revolution.

This last farewell concert was attended by a full house audience. Among them were Alexandrians, several consuls from foreign countries, and representatives of different cultural alexandrian associations.
