5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous music! March 22, 2009
By SJK
Format:Audio CD
I had the radio on and wasn't really listening but suddenly my ears perked up to some absolutely beautiful guitar playing. I ran to get pad and paper so I could write down who this was. Turns out they were interviewing David Russell...better yet, he was in town for a concert! I ordered tickets and ended up in Row 6 in the middle. I was enthralled by the mastery and lyrical beauty of his playing. I bought this CD at intermission because it contains the piece that I first heard that morning, "Mysterious Barricade" (David commented during his performance that no one knows why the composer called it "mysterious"). Also on the CD is a moving performance of "Air on a G-String" (in D) that is also worth the price of this CD. For anyone who remembers Julian Bream's prolific career in which he generated virtuoso guitar music of excellence year after year, this guy is every bit as good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best classical guitar music ever August 31, 2008
By Mary
Format:Audio CD
After hearing a selection from this CD on NPR, I knew I had to purchase a copy. I bought a copy for myself and also as a gift. David Russell takes his guitar to a place that touches your soul and makes your heart sing along. Even if you are not a fan of classical music you will love this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful recording December 31, 2012
By RG
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
David Russell is amazing. His renditions of Baroque classical masterpieces are incomparable. The music is relaxing and soothing, perfect for winding down at the end of a busy day. You can't even hear any string squeaks, his playing is so impeccable. A beautiful album for classical guitar enthusiasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Collection of Baroque Pieces on Guitar September 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had to laugh when I read other reviews of this album because I, too, heard part of it completely by accident when I switched on our local classical music station one morning (it was Jacques De Saint-Luc's "La Prise de Gaeta") and quickly scrambled to get a pen and paper to write down the name of the musician and the piece before it was over, such was the immediate impression the music made on me. In fact, I'm listening to it now as I write this review. The selection of songs was well thought out, mixing pieces by Bach with wonderful works by other baroque composers who aren't as well known to most of us as JSB. The music selected is beautiful throughout and, it seems to me, excellently performed. I am not a trained musician, so I can't describe it in technical terms, but every note seems very cleanly played and delivered with just the right touch. This is a fluid and extremely pleasing performance of a very interesting selection of beautiful baroque pieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most enjoyable guitar cd August 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I have been listening to this CD for as long as it has been out. David Russell is a uniquely talented guitarist and I have enjoyed each part of his offerings. I have another of his CDs, and am amazed at his versatility--it is from a totally different musical era drawing on completely different talents and interpretation. This CD may be on the top of my most favorite list for a long time.
