I have both Russell and Williams.
I don't see why some people find one better than the other.
Both are amazing; they are just different.
If you like a musically and technically sophisticated performance, Williams may suit you better. If you believe music should be something romantic and beautiful, you should definitely go for Russell. Besides, they contain many different songs.
If you are a guitar enthusiast, you should have both. They are worth the money!!!

A wonderful recording of unsurpassed music by a great guitarist! I particularly enjoyed the fluidity, clarity and precision of Russell's playing. Another plus: four of the pieces I haven't found on other recordings dedicated to Barrios --Vals de Primavera, Vals Tropical, Fabiniana, and A Mi Madre. So why only four stars (the same as the Williams disc)? It left me feeling "almost." Almost convincing; almost Paraguayan; almost right.
One advantage in living in Paraguay is being nearly immersed in Barrios' music. The guitar program recognized by the Ministry of Culture is top-heavy with Barrios from year three on, to the detriment of a balanced repertoire. Everyone plays Barrios all the time. My favorite Barrios CDs are by the two top Paraguayan guitarists: Berta Rojas, Intimate Barrios (Dorian Recordings), and Luz Maria Bobadilla, Homenaje a Agustin Barrios Mangore (Banco Union del Paraguay). Are Berta and Luz Maria as good as Williams and Russell? No. But they have grown up surrounded by the rhythms and harmonies that first flowed through Barrios' head and heart. They feel and interpret the part of Barrios' work that is distinctively Paraguayan (only part of his work draws heavily on that background) better than any other guitarist I've heard. With them, Barrios sings in a way that is missing in either Russell or Williams. BTW, try comparing Berta Rojas's recording of Verano Porteño with that of Williams.

Sometime earlier I reviewed this CD, recommending it to enthusiasts to Augustin Barrios' guitar music who don't know Barrios' music that well. At that time I had not heard either John Williams' most recent all Barrios CD, "From the Jungles of Paraguay," and knew nothing of Berta Rojas except for having learned of her from another Amazon.com customer reviewer who lived in Paraguay.

David Russell's all Barrios CD remains a very fine CD, with his typical combination of outstanding technique married to a fine, intuitive way of highly musical, felt phrasing.

John Williams, with whom David Russell is compared when it comes to performances of Barrios' guitar music, may be more polished than Russell, yet there is a sameness about how he plays and phrases Barrios that ultimately disappoints. Williams' CD is very much a recording yet, for me , the sheer polish Williams displays isn't satisfying isn't satisfying in the end. To me David Russell's all Barrios CD is the better of the two.

Yet Berta Rojas combines the best of David Russell and John Williams, and is my overall first choice. She grew up hearing Barrios' music, and it is in her blood. She plays with an abandon and a freedom that David Russell cannot match, however good I think he is.

Serious Barrios' fans of his music should have all three guitarists: Berta Rojas, David Russell and John Williams. They also should not miss Jason Vieaux's Naxos CD of Latin American guitar music, which is a gorgeous CD.

Recommended.

David Russell has joined Christopher Parkening as one of my two favorite classical guitarists, but Russell has a much larger repertoire and brings perfect sensitivity and expression to each and every genre. I own every one of his albums that I can acquire.

Like all of Mr. Russell's recordings this is perfectly played, warm and rich in tone color. I've seen him perform in concert and he's every bit as good on stage.

I had been looking for an all-Barrios CD for a long time then I found this one by David Russell. He's an excellent guitarist and interpreter of Barrios music. Julia Florida rules!

This is definetely David Russel's best cd although I have to agree that in some pieces such as Danza Paraguaya n1 the use of rubato is a bit excessive. David Russel is a wonderful player and if you have never heard him live, you are definetely missing something!

Having not yet listened to Williams' all-Barrios CD, I have to say that this is the best recording of Barrios I have heard. Russell plays with grace and beauty, and, above all, feeling.
Favorite track: Las Abejas.
