New CD of the Week | Mediterraneo

 

Charismatic guitarist Miloš Karadaglic debuts on Deutsche Grammophon with Mediterraneo, saluting his instrument’s Mediterranean heritage.

Born in the Balkan state of Montenegro, Miloš’s love-affair with the guitar began when he was eight, when his father played him a recording of Segovia making magic with Albeniz’s ‘Asturias’.  Miloš gave his first public performance at nine, entered (and won) his first national competition at eleven. He became a star performer on television and radio, took guitar master-classes in Belgrade, and then, shortly after the end of the Balkan war, decided to try for a scholarship at London’s Royal Academy of Music.  Miloš’s choices of solo repertoire as well as music for guitar and orchestra for Mediterraneo are guaranteed to appeal to all lovers of guitar, classical and non-classical alike.
