New Concierto de Aranjuez From Guitarist Milos Karadaglic

Milos Karadaglic, the internationally acclaimed young guitarist from the small Balkan country of Montenegro, has released a new recording featuring the most popular and best-loved of all guitar concertos, the Concierto de Aranjuez of Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo.  It will be the centerpiece of our next Fretworks broadcast on Classical 101. Milos' most recent release is described as a musical journey to the the heartland of Spain.  The disc also contains the almost-as-popular Fantasia para un gentilhombre, also by Rodrigo, but I'll save that for a future broadcast.  There's another piece by Rodrigo, Invocacion y danza, an homage to Falla,and two by Manuel de Falla, Homenaje, in memory of Claude Debussy, and The Miller's Dance from The Three-Cornered Hat, all on a recording that is sure to be a big hit. In addition to Rodrigo's lovely evocation of the palace and gardens of Aranjuez, the next Fretworks will open with the Hill-Wiltchinsky Guitar Duo for Preludio and Corrente by Antonio Vivaldi, and Argentinian guitarist Victor Villadangos will play music of his fellow countryman, Sergio Natali. Also on the program, the great lutenist Paul O'Dette who hails from right her in Columbus, will have music of the English Renaissance from John Dowland, a Pavan and The most sacred Queene Elizabeth, her Galliard, and the team of flutist Gary Schocker and guitarist Jason Vieaux will play an arrangement of a sonata by Johann Sebastian Bach. Fretworks airs Saturdays at 7 pm and now also at 7 pm Wednesday evenings here on Classical 101. http://youtu.be/-lC1Qy5KheA
