“He played each work with complete assurance as he gradually divulged a musical imagination that stretched far beyond the limitations of the six strings.”
The Washington Post
GRAMMY award winning classical guitarist David Russell is world renowned for his superb musicianship and inspired artistry, having earned the highest praise from audiences and critics alike. In recognition of his great talent and his international career, he was named a Fellow of The Royal Academy of Music in London in 1997.
Since 1995 David Russell has an exclusive contract with Telarc International, with whom he has recorded a CD featuring the music of Paraguayan guitarist-composer Agustín Barrios Mangoré, another with the music of Spanish composer Federico Moreno Torroba, a recording including the three Rodrigo concerti for solo guitar (Concierto de Aranjuez, Fantasía para un Gentilhombre and Concierto para una Fiesta), “Celtic Music for Guitar,” “Music by Giuliani,” “Baroque Music,” “Spanish Favorites,” “David Russell plays Bach,” “Aire Latino,” (Grammy winner) dedicated to music written by Latin American composers, and his most recent “Spanish Legends.”
Upon hearing Mr. Russell’s playing in London, Andrés Segovia wrote: “My congratulations on your musicality and guitaristic technique”.
