Review | Tuesday 10 July 2012
The classical-guitaristwith- the-movie-star-looks’ second album is a collection of Latin American pieces. Featured here are Carlos Gardel’s ‘Por Una Cabeza’ (popular from the film Scent of a Woman), Piazzolla’s classics ‘Libertango’ and ‘Oblivion’, and the folk hit ‘Quizás, Quizás, Quizás’ in a new arrangement for solo guitar and string orchestra. Karadaglic really shines on the solo pieces – Villa Lobos’s ‘Prelude No.1’(one of Milos’ signature tunes heard in many of his concerts around the world), and Leo Brouwer’s beautiful ‘Un dia de noviembre’ are standouts on a recording that is not short on memorable moments. This is a well balanced programme that will only enhance Karadaglic’s standing in the world of the classical guitar. He tours Australia in November of this year.
