” ’15 Songfest’s most intriguing matchup”

Cathalena Burch of the Arizona Daily Star raved about this recent duo recital: “The Tucson Desert Song Festival kicked off its second weekend with arguably its most interesting song recital: the vocal guitar duo of tenor Rufus Müller and guitarist David Leisner..When Leisner plucked the strings, his fingers dancing over the frets with balletic grace, he sucked you into another dimension. The man has some mad skills, but not the rock-star-going-on-a-solo-tangent type of skills. He plays with the intuition of a man who is one with his instrument…Müller was the spotlight throughout a trio of Schubert’s “Schwanengesang” song cycle. It was a quick introduction to his vocal range: sweetly soft on the higher register, warm and playful at the lower and thoroughly commanding of our attention at any range.”
