Classical guitarist David Burgess studied music at Mexico City's Estudio de Arte Guitarrìstico under the noted Argentine guitarist Manuel López Ramos, subsequently landing a full scholarship to study in Italy with Oscar Ghiglia. An occasional pupil of Andrés Segovia throughout the mid-'80s, Burgess also took top honors in the Andrés Segovia Fellowship Competition in New York City, and placed first in the Mexico City's Ponce International Competition, Toronto's Guitar '81 competition and Munich's 31st International Music Competition. A onetime instuctor at the University of Washington and the Cornish Institute of the Arts, in time Burgess settled in New York City, releasing his solo debut Silver Nuggets and Fool's Gold. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
