Balkan Guitarist Miloš Debuts New Guitar Concertos
Montenegro-born, and London-based classical guitarist Miloš, celebrates his 10th anniversary with the recording label Decca by releasing The Moon and the Forest, which includes two concertos written for him.
Miloš (whose full name is Miloš Karadaglić), asked two composers as famous for their film music as for their concert works: Joby Talbot (who has residences in both Oregon and Great Britain), and Howard Shore. Both created concertos that the guitarist considers a dream come true: works that truly integrate the guitar and the orchestra, rather than works that pit the soloist against the orchestra. They are very original, distinctive works; atmospheric, rhythmic, melodic, exciting and meditative. These concertos both, as Miloš says in his conversation with John Pitman, “allow the guitar to sing.”
