Renown conductor Arto Tchiftchian comments on Russo's music:
I heard your disc with orchestral works and I am very impressed.
Your music is very beautiful and has his own atmosphere with elegiac character and nostalgic, regret feeling for the lost harmony.A remembrance of persons and places of passed times.In slow, meditative portions and lyric moments of your music you are in the tradition of great American poetry of E.Dickinson and H.Longfellow and in the same time you show a very great talent for melody line in the fast tempi.
I want to have chance to conduct your music one day.
With all my best wishes
Renown Bulgarian Conductor -- now residing in Los Angeles, USA
