For his third album on Mercury Classics/Deutsche Grammophon, international chart-topping classical guitarist Miloš Karadaglić takes the world-famous Concierto de Aranjuez as the starting point for a journey across the Spanish landscape, paying tribute to the great composers and musicians who placed the modern classical guitar firmly on the international stage.

The Concierto de Aranjuez was written by Joaquín Rodrigo for the Spanish guitarist Regino Sainz de la Maza and very soon became not just the most famous Spanish guitar concerto but also the most famous guitar concerto of all time; its ravishing slow movement was taken up and arranged by musicians of all genres, from Miles Davis, Chick Corea, Jim Hall to Herb Alpert, from Frank Sinatra to José Carreras. And now, Miloš has produced a standalone new interpretation of Aranjuez; the definitive version for our time.

Miloš sees the work as “the holy grail of the guitar repertoire and an endless source of inspiration. The first and last movements sparkle with energy and rhythm. They paint the landscape of nature, happiness and love. The legendary second movement takes us to a different reality, where emotions overflow and a string becomes a voice.”

For the recording of the new album Aranjuez, Miloš was joined by the London Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios in London. Miloš recalls that “Yannick’s energy is infectious and our collaboration was the most electric experience. When we met before the recording sessions to run through the music together, he taught me things I shall always be grateful for. For example, he asked me to rethink my approach to Rodrigo’s notorious scale passages. He suggested that, instead of focusing on each note, I should think of them as gestures – taking each one in a different direction as if they were brushstrokes. At that moment I relaxed completely; I had found the final piece of a puzzle, a piece I had been looking for all along.”

Aranjuez is a celebration of the most popular Spanish works for guitar and orchestra, which includes Rodrigo’s Fantasía para un gentilhombre, and it explores the birth and recognition of the modern guitar in the 20th century. “The guitar as we know it today emerged only at the end of the 19th century, after centuries of various transformations. The Spanish guitar maker Antonio de Torres constructed an instrument larger in size and tone than its predecessors, and that marked the beginning of a new age. The guitar was ready to leave the elegant aristocratic salon for the concert platform…”

For Miloš it has been a long journey from Montenegro, where he was born and at eight started playing the guitar. Now a household name, he has become among his generation one of the most successful champions of his instrument. London, where he now lives, played a decisive role in his career, particularly during his years as a student at the Royal Academy of Music.

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“The young guitarist comes across as an interpreter of delicacy and meticulousness.” Financial Times, 14th February 2014

“[in the Concerto] Karadaglić opts for clearly defined paragraphs of great rhythmic precision...This is a thoughtful and, I think, durable interpretation that will stand the test of time...it's in Rodrigo's Invocacion y danza that we find Karadaglić at his soloistic and, yes, elegant best.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2014

“[Miloš ] demonstrates not only his incredible technique – with effortless sounding runs and trills full of sparkling rhythmic vitality – but also real varieties of colours and musical subtleties. He has a really natural-sounding rubato which is never calculating or forced, but just re-enforces phrasing and subtle harmonic changes...Wonderful playing and a hugely enjoyable disc all round.” Chris O'Reilly, Presto Classical, 24th February 2014

“Fans of Miloš Karadaglić will need no urging to obtain this third album. Others may do so with confidence, even if they have other versions of one or both of the main works.” MusicWeb International, 15th March 2014

“Miloš Karadaglić has a feather-light touch, honeyed tone and warm bass. Musical details are well thought through, and - like a good pianist pedalling - he knows when, and how long, to let notes and chords ring on for colourful effect...this is a thoroughly recommendable beautiful disc.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2014 *****

Thibaud Garcia (guitar)

A Frenchman with Spanish blood, 22-year-old guitarist Thibaut Garcia makes his Erato debut with Leyendas (Legends), an atmospheric recital of music by Spanish and Argentinian composers: Albéniz, Falla, Rodrigo, Tárrega (his famous, shimmering Recuerdos de la Alhambra), Manjón and Piazzolla. “I wanted to show the guitar in its full glory,” says Garcia. “These legendary works are so close to my heart because they are part of my life and my travels.”

“This is music which made me love the guitar and which also reminds me of my Spanish roots. It shows various facets of the instrument, from the more popular style of Piazzolla’s Estaciones Porteñas and Falla’s Siete canciones populares españolas to the more classical, intimate and elegant world of Albéniz. I am a great fan of music from the early 20th century – it displays the full palette of colours that the guitar can offer.”

Making a guest appearance on the album is Erato cellist Edgar Moreau, who plays in the group of pieces by Falla. “This was the first time Edgar and I played together,” says Garcia. “It felt spontaneous, like two friends getting to know each other.”

“Garcia’s smooth, rich and sweet sound and impeccable virtuosity, in a spacey and warm acoustic, may not be a totally individual voice yet. But this [is] a delight for everyone, from the curious discovering the core Latin guitar repertoire, to collectors who want the best…this outstandingly played, well-balanced, well-thought selection is definitely up among them” BBC Music Magazine, January 2017 *****

Winner of the 2015 Tárrega Guitar Competition, João Carlos Victor brings us a captivating and imaginative programme with numerous transcriptions of his own and a première recording of music dedicated to him with Paulo Rios Filho’s dramatic Répéter. The music of John Dowland stands at the heart of this album, the mystery and melancholy of his chromatic fantasias providing moments of reflection between the theatricality of Rodrigo’s Invocación y Danza, Tárrega’s luminous mazurkas, and Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s brightly neo-classical Sonata.

Artyom Dervoed (classical guitar)

This young Russian guitarist Artyom Dervoed is undoubtedly one of the eminent figures of world guitar art. “A musician with a broad dynamic range, intellectual and expressive observation of the phrasing, and boundless technical abilities”, “an artist of the highest calibre”, “the tsar of the guitar”, as foreign music critics enthusiastically describe the young musician.

At the age of thirteen, he scored his first victory at the International Competition 'Young Musicians' in Moscow. Between 1994 and 2014, Artyom Dervoed won prizes in thirty-seven international contests, including sixteen first awards.

Artyom Dervoed’s first album was recorded for Naxos in 2007 and included works of Russian composers. It entered the top ten bestselling chamber music albums and was acclaimed by Classical Guitar magazine. The musician’s new album is dedicated to the roots of the classical guitar tradition – Spanish music of the 16th to 20th centuries. It features works by Manuel de Falla, Joaquín Rodrigo, Francisco Tárrega and others.
