Format: Audio CD
David Russell, born in Glasgow, was raised in the sunny paradise of Minorca, Spain. At age 14 he took up the guitar, prompted by his father, artist William Russell an amateur guitarist. David was weaned on scratchy 78 RPM recordngs of Segovia, and later studied music and guitar at the Royal Academy of Music in London. Winner of the Bream and Segovia awards while in his youth, David went on to become one of the finest classical guitart soloists in the world. His venture into Celtic traditional tunes stems from his enchantment upon hearing a taped recording of World Champion Strathclyde Police Pipe Band playing marches, reels and laments. ...David felt the sublime call of ancient tunes played on ancient pipes...and knew that, one day, he would adapt these very tunes to the guitar. At last he has done just that...and listeners, Celtic or not, are in for a treat! Here, indeed, are Celtic gems which will steal your heart away...played with such feeling you'd think David wrote every one himself. A masterpiece by a master player! Jim Leggett International Press Service

David Russell is recognised as a master of romantic guitar music, and on this beautiful recording he pays homage to his Celtic roots, with his own arrangements Irish reels, Scottish lullabies, and folk songs.
From the opening track, the blistering Bucks of Oranmore, to the lush title track Message of the Sea, Russells playing is never less than truly captivating, as always with meticulous attention to detail. Every ornament is crisp and consise, and standard classics like The Bonnie Banks of Loch Lomond sound here as though they were written for the guitar.

I bought this CD two weeks ago and it hasn't been out of the player the entire time! Every piece is masterfully played; there are no distractions like squeaks or glissandos. Every note is perfect. The selection of pieces is terrific. I recommend this CD highly.

I bought this after hearing one of the pieces, Farewell to Stromness, on the radio a number of times. These pieces are beautifully played, and David Russell has composed wonderful arrangements of the well-known tunes. Altogether, one of the most beautiful recordings I have heard in a long time. -B. Stafford

David Russell, whose bell-like purity of tone on the classical guitar has to be heard to be believed, returns from the classical repertoire of the guitar to the folk repertoire of his Scots heritage and makes a clutch of Celtic ballads completely new. An amazing performance for fans of both the classical guitar and Celtic music.

I bought the CD a year or so ago, after attending a live performance of Mr. Russell's, when he played, "The Bonny Bonny Banks of Loch Lomand". It was so beautiful (not a dry eye in the place), so I bought the CD. I listend to the CD once in my car, and noted the famous tunes, and not much else. I went back to my Bach and Mozart, never playing Mr. Russell's CD again - until this week, when - after another live concert by Mr. Russell, I took out my copy of Message of the Sea and put it on. Now I can't stop playing it. It really caught me. Absolutely beautiful. It's not a CD to listen to once, or to pick out one cut or two. You must hear it from beginning to end. Only then do you get caught up in the mood - the ambiance. It weaves a tapestry - it casts a spell - but quietly. This is something different - a departure from the standard repertoire (do we really need another recording of Bach's Lute Suites anyway?). This is truly different. It is to be treasured. I highly recommend it - but find a quiet place and put it on and just let it play. Let it play a few times like that and you will be enchanted - as I am.

These are traditional Irish and Celtic tunes, played on the guitar by one of the great guitarists of our generation. Some tunes are familiar, others not, but every note sounds "just right." A very enjoyable listen from the first. Repeated listenings reveal many subtleties in the music. You really can't go wrong with this recording. Highly recommended.
