"Russell has a sweetly expressive style that rests on a formidable command of his instrument and a deep affinity for traditional Spanish music"
Stereo Review

Moreno Torroba is maybe one of the best composers for guitar, unfortunately little known. David Russel brings to life some magnificent pieces with his wonderful tone and phrasing. Impeccable production and sound as well. An absolute must for guitar lovers and a good beginning for those who are not.
