He was soloist with the Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra for their June 2019 performance of Rodrigo’s monumental “Aranjuez” concerto.
His mission is to create concerts full of color and variety, appealing to the newcomer as well as the aficionado. He has recorded four albums, highlighting four centuries of music, including his original compositions and arrangements. David teaches guitar, theory, and composition at his home studio in Clermont, NY. David’s original music has been used internationally in films, television, and musical theater. Noah Fleisher of the Taconic Weekend reviewed the CD “Night Dances: Music of Spain and Latin America” and stated, “David is one of those rare musicians of any genre that is able to play directly what is coming from his head, without barrier between mind, finger and fretboard.”
