Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Peggy And Yale Gordon Center For Performing Arts, Owing (03/05/2001-03/07/2001).

David Russell is a remarkably talented guitarist who captivates listeners with his precision, poise, and technical fluency. His playing is informed by a keen musical intelligence and his astute performances are notable for their attention to detail, and insights that suggest a deep understanding of the music. With REFLECTIONS OF SPAIN, Russell offers a straightforward program of some of the most well known pieces of the Spanish guitar repertory, which ably demonstrate the extraordinary dimensions of his talent.

Russell's own arrangements of works by Enrique Granados and Isaac Albéniz maintain their idiomatic flavor and musical integrity while providing ample opportunities to display his superb technique. His elegant, flawless accounts of evocative masterworks such as "Andaluza," "Sevilla," and "Asturias," among others, are models of understated virtuosity and brilliant musicianship. Russell's playing throughout projects a sense of adventure, and even old favorites such as "Recuerdos de la Alhambra" sound vibrant and fresh under his nimble fingers. REFLECTIONS OF SPAIN is a well-conceived presentation of six-string artistry at its finest.
