Description
Although the repertory for classical guitar extends back to the Renaissance, the instrument continues to inspire a wealth of music from a wide variety of international composers, many of them performers of virtuoso caliber. David Russell's first collection of solo contemporary works opens with Sergio Assad's Aquarelle. Named for the French word for watercolor, its three movements are a fantasy-like Divertimento, the gentle and dream-like waltz Valseana, and the technically brilliant Preludio. Next is Francis Kleynjans' musical tribute Arabesque en forme de Caprice sur le Tombeau de Tárrega, composed in 1988. Steve Goss's nostalgic El Llanto de los Sueños ("The Weeping of Dreams"), draws on imagery of Spanish poet Federico García Lorca. The disc closes with three pieces by Phil Rosheger: Waltz No. 7, Lullaby to Wake Up To, and Good Luck Waltz.

"Russell has transcendental technique, exquisite taste and profound musicianship. The composers here were happy to exploit all of this in their works…. The most powerful of these pieces is Ben Verdery's 'Now and Ever', a two-movement tour de force that he describes as 'my musical statement against slavery of any kind'…. This CD is a treasure."—American Record Guide
