Forever My Beloved

The world class talents of flutist Bettine Clemen and violinist Conni Ellisor combine with Russell's to perform music that is full of fire, passion and sensitivity.
"Russell's music aspires to nothing short of heaven, its rhapsodic waves of sound splash and play up and down the perfect white expanse of keys in great sighs and storms of emotion. It is major league from top to bottom."
