About Milos Karadaglic: Homage to Segovia
Every generation has that super special guitarist, one with star quality and universal appeal, praised for their effortless technique and musical integrity. We have Miloš - “the hottest guitarist in the world” (Sunday Times).
The Classical BRIT award-winner received unanimous acclaim for his 2016 Beatles album. He was named among the six greatest classical guitarists of all time by BBC Music magazine alongside the great guitar legend, Andrés Segovia, to whom he pays tribute in this concert.
Describing Segovia, Miloš says “we guitarists owe him a lot because he put us on the map”. In this homage, he picks out “some of the most important pieces” from Segovia’s repertoire as well as works “that I personally feel a strong connection with”. Original pieces and sophisticated arrangements show off the guitar’s many qualities, from energy and rhythm to delicacy and detail.
Three pieces from Albeniz’s Suite Española soak up the sunshine and warmth of Segovia’s Spanish homeland, while each of Villa Lobos’s Five Preludes is a homage in its own right – to Brazilian life and culture and to Bach, among them.
The technical challenges of Bach’s Chaconne for violin translate perfectly to the guitar and Sor’s Variations on a Theme by Mozart was one of Segovia’s early favourites. Finishing with a new commission of his own, Miloš continues Segovia’s tradition of constantly adding to the guitar repertoire.
