"Barrios is fashionable... It can certainly be very pretty and David Russell knows this better than anyone. He doesn't try to make a great composer out of Barrios, mercifully, but concentrates on the beauty of tremolo and a unique harmonic sense. Quite enough too, without global pronouncements about value."
Colin Cooper, Classical Guitar

I had been looking for an all-Barrios CD for a long time then I found this one by David Russell. He's an excellent guitarist and interpreter of Barrios music. Julia Florida rules!
