David Russell Plays El ultimo trémolo by Barrios

David Russell Plays BarriosOne of my students is playing El ultimo trémolo, also called Una Limosna por el Amor de Dios or El último canto by Agustín Barrios Mangoré so I was looking for good examples for her to follow. Who better than David Russell. An excellent video for this work where you can see everything Russell does fingering-wise. His beautiful phrasing, rubato, and dynamic shaping is superb.

Via Amazon: CD (Music of Barrios) or sheet music (The Complete Works of Agustin Barrios Mangore, Vol. 2)

  1. Fantastic tremolo. I think he has the best tremolo, smooth and easily controlled. Well done David you are great.
