David Russel at the Marlow Guitar Series
World-renowned artist David Russell returns to the Marlow Series for the fifth time to perform a concert of classical guitar.
The parents of Scottish-born David Rusell moved the family to Es Migjorn, Minorca, Spain, when he was five. This town has now made Russel an “adopted son,” naming a street after him.
Russel has recorded 16 albums, including Aire Latino, for which he won a Grammy in 2004, in the category of Best Classical Instrumental Solo. Other recordings include the complete works of Francisco Tarrega, as well as several recordings of works by the Paraguayan composer Agustín Barrios Mangoré and Spanish composers Federico Moreno-Torroba and Joaquín Rodrigo.
David Russell was recently awarded the prestigious Artistic Achievement Award by the Guitar Foundation of America for his contributions to the development of the art and life of the classical guitar.
