This is a great performance for the very versatile David Russell. His playing is thoughtful and expressive, but also sensitive and not overly extraverted. His use of rubato is excellent on most tracks, and his constant contrast of dynamics, as well as vibrato, give the pieces on this album real life and emotion.

I had been performing 5 of the tracks on this album when it came out, so I can attest to the difficulty of many of these pieces, especially all three movements of the Morel "Sonatina." I can also say that his performances of these is very true; I could hear no incorrect notes , with the exception of some added notes in the first movement of "Sonatina," which I have since adopted myself for my own performance. His expressive interpretation is likewise impeccable on these tracks.

This record would be a great purchase for anyone interested in classical guitar, whether they are just getting into the genre or already have a large collection, or anyone interested in Latin American art music.

Perfect! One will very rarely discover an album as finely constructed as this. The performer stands at the pinnacle of his profession, one who demonstrates mastery of the instrument and intimate understanding of the music. The selections are interesting, fresh and never boring. There is delight in the listening from beginning to end. Mr. Russell is quite simply astonishing as he unerringly takes the listener on a journey of unalloyed beauty. This is a disc you will relish again and again. If you love the guitar, you must have it.

David Russell is arguably the finest classical guitarist in the world, along with Manuel Barrueco and Paul Galbraith, and a few others. I have almost all Russell's CDs, and I enjoy them tremendously. Aire Latino is a collection of many of the best and most popular modern short pieces from Latin composers. Hearing his interpretation and flawless execution has rekindled my love for many of those pieces I once also played. Highly recommended!

Fine collection of Latin music. Russell brings them to life with his excellent skills and clear, bright sound. I haven't heard close to 70% of these pieces on any other recording or performance before; it's always nice to hear new (to me anyway) and interesting music. My favorites in this collection are: Danza Brasilera, La Cuartalera, Interrogando, Seis por Derecho, Vals Peruano, and Chopi, which are all on the upbeat side. However, there are several slower and more melancholy pieces that are beautiful as well.

A wonderful, beautiful CD. The fact that the music is all inter-related creates a beautiful atmosphere while listening. I know enough to know that this type of artistic endeavor is a collaboration; so kudos to David Russell, producer Rosalind Ilett and engineer Thomas Knab! I understand that this team has worked on many of David Russell's amazing recordings.

I have almost all of David Russel's CDs, and many other CDs of Latin American guitar music. This is my favorite in both categories for about 2 years, now! His rendition of Cardoso's Vals Peruano is amazing. It'll make you sit up and say, "What???? How did he do THAT???". In his hands, Reis' nice little "waltz-y" Se Ela Perguntar becomes a plaintive elegy that'll rip your heart right out of your chest. I played it in this style at my father's funeral and there wasn't a dry eye in the place. This is an amazing CD from, (I think), the best classical guitarist touring today.

This is my second CD of David Russell and I find it as compelling as his Augustine Barrios Mangore recording. He continues to amaze me with his artistic and interpretive skill. My personal favorite classical artists on the guitar have long been Julian Bream, Christopher Parkening, and John Williams. I now add David Russell. There are many other guitarists, these days, that are worth listening to and collecting their works, but these four, in my opinion, can reach into your heart and touch your soul with the beauty of classical guitar music more consistently than most. This is playing you can love.

David Russell is one of my favourite guitar players. His brilliant technique and interpretations are recognized the world over. Aire Latino: Latin American Music for Guitar is perhaps my favourite David Russell recording. The selections are outstanding and include composers Jorge Morel, Ariel Ramirez, Augustin Barrios, and Manuel Ponce to name a few. This is an amazing 73 minutes of music on the Telarc label recorded by Rosalind Ilett and Robert Woods. Russell plays a guitar by Matthias Dammann, which is clearly an outstanding instrument. Highly recommended!
