Notes and Editorial Reviews

On April 12, guitarist David Russell, recognized for his “evident mastery” of the Spanish guitar repertoire, releases a new album featuring distinctive works by master Isaac Albéniz. With movements from the picturesque Recuerdos de Viaje and Cantos de España to enchanting, Gypsy-inspired dances like the Zambra Granadina, the album celebrates the best of Albéniz’ oeuvre, including works originally composed for other instruments. “The magic in Albeniz’ Spanish melodies is unsurpassed. Many of his pieces sound so good on the guitar that it is amazing that they were not written for our instrument,” says Russell. “I am sure that he had the sound of the guitar in the back of his mind, while he was writing them.” On April 12, guitarist David Russell, recognized for his “evident mastery” of the Spanish guitar repertoire, releases a new album featuring distinctive works by master Isaac Albéniz.
