Anyway, I digress!
I also bought it with a little apprehension. Aprehension because the track listing is the same or features the same, old usual suspects that are featured on a million other guitar albums. Hmmm, I thought. I’m interested to hear how he goes, but jeez I wish people would record some different repertoire….
He was born in Montenegro in 1983 and grew up during the time of the Balkan civil war. Miloš began playing the guitar at the age of eight and very quickly won national recognition for his performances. At 16 he was awarded a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music where, after graduating with First Class Honours, he went on to complete a Masters degree in Performance.
In July 2010 he signed an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon. The Guitar is his first recording, which is a two disc set complete with DVD doco and music clips. In true Margaret and David style, I give this album 4.5 stars out of 5 – a great introduction for those just encountering or not so familiar with the guitar. It is also a fantastic addition for the discerning guitar fan’s collection. Milos has proven without doubt that he bring something special to our well-known repertoire. I can’t wait to see what he brings to us next.
