The opening concert of the guitar festival 2004 on Friday night in the the sold out Kreuzkirche, once again did not leave behind any desire. Like in the last festival two years ago it was the guitar virtuoso David Russell who had the honour to set the tone to the many artistic highlights of the concert series. A good choice of the organizing guitar circle in Nürtingen considering that the Scottish artist, who is living in Spain, belongs to the world elite of the classical guitarists and has already been for many years one of the important exponents of the festival. Roaring applause was the artist¹s reward for his always perfect and fascinating guitar playing.
