Scottish guitarist David Russell is performing as part of the second Cemal Reşit Rey International Guitar Days. Born in Glasgow, Russell began playing the guitar with his father on Menorca Island where he spent his childhood years. When he was 16, he entered the Royal Academy of Music and began studying with Hector Quine. He won two consecutive Julian Bream Awards in 1973 and 1974, and then graduated in 1974 with a scholarship for further study presented by the Ralph Vaughan Williams Fund. Among his other awards, he has also won the Ramirez Competition, Santiago de Compostela in 1975, Andres Segovia, Palma de Mallorca and the Terrega Award, which he earned in Benicasim. Moreover, the artist was granted a Grammy Award in 2005 for Best Instrumental Composition in classical music with his album "Aire Latino." After his debut performances in New York and Wigmore Hall in 1981, he gave recitals in Europe, South East Asia, Canada and the United States. He has composed music with important composers such as Santarsola, Morel and Assad. Thanks to his technique, emotional tone and warm-hearted personality, as well as his effort to include lesser-known composers in his repertoire, he has become an admired and world-renowned performer. Among his recordings, his work with the music of Francisco Tarrega is considered the most important. Following veterans John Williams and Julian Bream, Russell is considered one of the most impressive guitar performers in the world.
