“Russell is not only an elegant musician but also a technician of the highest order.” —San Francisco Classical Voice 

Classical guitarist David Russell is world-renowned for his superb musicianship and inspired artistry, having earned the highest praise from audiences and critics alike. He received a Grammy Award for his CD, Aire Latino, and in 2018 was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the Guitar Foundation of America. In recognition of his great talent and his international career, he was named a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music in London in 1997 and was given the Medal of Honor of the Conservatory of the Balearics in November 2003. He is also an honorary member of "Amigos de la Guitarra," the oldest guitar society in Spain. Russell appears regularly at prestigious halls in cities such as New York, London, Tokyo, Madrid, Toronto, and Rome. Upon hearing him play in London, Andrés Segovia wrote: "My congratulations on your musicality and guitaristic technique." In addition to his renown as a live performer, Russell is a prolific recording artist whose collection includes seventeen CDs with the Telarc International label.
