Notes and Editorial Reviews

Charismatic guitarist Miloš Karadaglic debuts on Deutsche Grammophon with an album 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.

"A beautifully-played recital that has a lot to offer."
Read more /> “…Montenegro is not exactly a hot bed of classical guitar, and the young Milos turned to the instrument since the family, a very musical one, could not afford a piano…and he went to town with it, flying through school courses with ease, winning the Julian Bream prize and accepting it from the hands of the master himself… On this first CD he has chosen music from the Mediterranean, a well-filled disc with novelties and popular items alike, extremely thoughtful in selection, and making for an enjoyable hour-plus of listening. This young man has technique to burn, and despite his insistence that his and Julian Bream’s styles are “different” one cannot help but hear much of the older master in this playing…The Albeniz Asturias fares well under Milos’s temperament…as exciting as you will ever hear it, and the Koyunbaba suite by contemporary composer Carlo Domeniconi (b. 1947) and the two pieces by Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis (b. 1925) “A Day in May” and “You Have Set, My Star” from his Epitaphios are given significant readings here.…a beautifully-played recital that has a lot to offer… Milos gets an “A” for enthusiasm and brilliance of style, and it will be very interesting to chart his artistic course over the coming years.”
