‘The music on this CD reflects my character. It tells the listener who I am.’ Miloš Karadaglić

Charismatic guitarist Miloš Karadaglić 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 of Muisic.

Miloš’s choices of solo repertoire as well as music for guitar and orchestra are guaranteed to appeal to all lovers of guitar, classical and non-classical alike.

“He punched through this trio of ballads (El Decamerón Negro) with an innate poise and elegance that made you sit up and listen . . . And then the firecracker: A superbly inflected, impeccably judged rendition of Ginastera’s Sonata − a giant tapestry of sound combining luminous melancholy and bravura energy” (The Times)

Bonus DVD

The DVD features a 30min documentary with footage filmed in Montenegro and London. The film brings Miloš’s inspirational story to light, an evocative and beautifully photographed piece that explores his background and how he came to be who he is today. It will showcase Miloš’s talent, his style of play and unique approach to classical guitar and his desire to redefine it as a contemporary instrument. Miloš wants to make classical guitar matter; he wants us to fall in love with its beauty and raw passion and bring new audiences to its repertoire.

The film will not just focus on Miloš the guitarist, but also the person behind the guitar. This will build a bridge between the human story and music, giving the viewer an opportunity to get to know a young man from Montenegro and how each stage of his life has contributed to bringing him to this point.

“Karadaglic can articulate rapidly with the best of them, but what stands out even in busy textures is an unshakably serene breadth of phrasing, fluent rhythm and unforced rubato...Nor does he need to draw attention to his own virtuosity, and his music-making is all the more absorbing for it.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2011 *****

“Karadaglić demonstrates exemplary technical skill and command of the instrument, musical flair and some really arresting and unusual tone colours in the style of his hero Julian Bream...He's at his most impressive and exciting in the transcriptions of piano works by Albeniz - Asturias and Granada - where his brilliant technique is evident.” Classic FM Magazine, July 2011 ***

“there are masterpieces here: classic arrangements of piano pieces from Albeniz’s Suite espagnola and Granados’s Danzas espagnolas, dazzlingly played, and works by the contemporary composers Carlo Domeniconi and Mikis Theodorakis that emphasise the Islamic influence on this essentially Mediterranean music.” Sunday Times, 29th May 2011 ****

“Understandably, he focuses mainly on the instrument's Iberian heritage, with dextrous readings of the familiar Tárrega and Albéniz standards: the latter's Asturias is delivered with poise and clarity, while the superb trilling triplets of Tárrega's Recuerdos de la Alhambra are perfectly measured. Elsewhere, two tunes by Mikis Theodorakis offer a taste of the guitarist's Balkan heritage.” The Independent, 22nd April 2011 ****

“The playing is lithe, subtle of timbre and transcendentally beautiful.” The Telegraph, 12th May 2011 *****

Christoph Denoth (guitar)

In his second CD for Signum Classics Swiss Guitarist Christoph Denoth explores musical 'homages' for the classical guitar:

"Homages and dedications have often a veiled mystique: the relationship between the composer and somebody else; a story and emotional experience hidden in the music. Homages are created from the heart, and reach out and engage the heart of the listener. To whom they are dedicated is not always easy to fathom, but they can speak and bloom as though they were only written for oneself, creating a poetry and beauty which fills our heart." Christoph Denoth

“The programming of this recital strikes me as well conceived and the playing is thoughtful.” MusicWeb International, 28th January 2015

Mattias Jacobsson (guitar)

Guitarist Mattias Jacobsson makes his recording debut on Avie with Invocación, a unique perspective on the works of Francisco Tárrega, his inspiration Chopin, and his students Llobet and Pujol.

The brilliant young guitarist Mattias Jacobsson invokes a guitar tradition originating with the influential Spanish composer Francisco Tárrega. The repertoire explores Tárrega’s influences and legacy, from the inspiration that Chopin had on his musical output through to his students Miguel Llobet and Emilio Pujol. Tárrega often turned to Chopin’s favoured forms - Preludes, Mazurkas and Nocturnes - and also transcribed works in those forms by Chopin. Mattias has created a unique concept in the guitar discography by juxtaposing Chopin transcriptions with Tárrega’s most Chopinesque works. The “invocación” continues through works of two of Tárrega’s most prominent pupils in Barcelona and even extends to Mattias himself, whose first teacher Erik Möllerström studied in Barcelona and secured an instrument from the great guitar maker Ignacio Fleta e hijos, that now has been passed on to Mattias and is played on this recording.

Juilliard-trained Mattias Jacobsson was born in Stockholm and has studied with Göran Söllscher and Sharon Isbin, among others. He has performed throughout Europe and the United States, and has appeared on Spanish television, New York’s WQXR and National Public Radio’s Performance Today. He has further extended his reach with several features in Classical Guitar Magazine and hundreds of thousands of views on his YouTube channel, http://www.youtube.com/user/guitarcactus

Andres Segovia, Maria Luisa Anido (guitars)

This is the 4th volume of DOREMI's series ''Segovia and his Contemporaries''. A special, 12 volume historic series of classical guitar recordings. MARIA LUISA ANIDO One of the greatest guitarists of all time, Anido has unfortunately been very little represented on record. A glaring omission, finally rectified in this volume! Acclaimed as a prodigy by Segovia himself, she developed a mature and unique artistry. She had a flourishing career during the 1930's and the 1950's. This wonderful Argentinian artist's romantic flair is beautifully demonstrated in a selection of virtuoso guitar works by the great Spanish masters, recorded in her prime. ANDRES SEGOVIA The selection of recital pieces presented in this volume originates from the same recording sessions in January 1944 which produced the Albeniz and Granados tracks heard on Vol. 1 of this series. Unavailable in any format for decades, these miniatures provide yet another glimpse into the art of the Maestro at the height of his powers. An eclectic selection of works spanning five centuries of western music.
