David Russell, guitar

“The indisputable maestro of the classical guitar” (El Commercio)


Apr 10, 2022


About the Artist

Grammy Award-winning guitarist David Russell “commands practically all means of expression possible on the guitar but he handles it with an extraordinary discipline only at the service of the tone and interpretation. He belongs to the greatest in the art of guitar” (Bonner Rundsschau).

“It is hard to imagine anyone being able to produce a more beautiful tone on a guitar than Russell did. He is a major artist who can take his place with the best guitarists of our day” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch).

“His luminous sound; the elegant simplicity and speaking quality of his playing; the grace of his ornamentation; his precise and supple rhythmic sense; all these made for wonderful listening” (The Ann Arbor News).
