Ninth Annual David Russell Bach Prize Finalists Recital
February 8 @ 12:08 am
One of Tucson’s great treasures is the musical residency of the extraordinary David Russell at the University of Arizona.
Grammy Award-winning guitarist David Russell is the sole judge of the four finalists. In May 2014 Maestro Russell was bestowed the Honorary Doctoral Degree from the University of Arizona. About this competition, Russell wrote, “The wonderful music of J.S. Bach is satisfying on all levels: emotionally, intellectually, technically and historically. It has given me so much pleasure and happiness all through my life, that I want to encourage all the students to dedicate some valuable time of their important formative years at the university to studying his music. The competition will be a very good incentive for them to include some of Bach’s works in their repertoire that I hope will give them the same pleasure for their entire lives.”
