Format: Audio CD
Milos Karadaglic, born in Montenegro in 1983, began playing the guitar at the age of 8. When he was 17 he successfully applied for a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music and moved to London where he continues to live while keeping close ties with his family and homeland. Milos is a passionate supporter of music education and acts as a Patron of the Mayor of London Fund for Young Musicians and the charity Awards for Young Musicians.

One of the aspects of Milos' skill is the silence of his fingers as they slide along the strings on the fret. Unlike many of the guitarists who have recorded (even the masters like Segovia, Bream and Williams) whose squeak as the fingers move up and down the fret could be distracting, Milos is able to travel those note changes in silence. It is uncanny. His playing is so intensely musical that even on the better known works played here he presents them afresh. The result is a collection of music for guitar that spans centuries and he makes them all satisfy. Instead of his usual recorded recitals of solo guitar, here he is joined by orchestral and vocal camaraderie, as aspect to remind us that he now is at that level of performing in such venues as Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, and in prestigious festivals around the globe. Canción is an album of transcriptions and arrangements of some classical works as well as Latin, South American and Spanish songs.

The musical value of this release is unmistakable. The guitar playing is amongst the cleanest I have heard while infusing the music of flow and musical worth. In that sense (and having grown with some of these songs) while the Assad arrangements are fabulous, it is Milos playing that makes them so lovely. Ergo: 5 stars to the first four tracks.
I was a bit skeptical of the guitar & orchestra arrangements but driven 'Libertango' has the right elan, while 'Romance' & 'Fandango' do not fall (alas!) into the usual kitsch; tough when there is so much competition, including the original versions. In that sense, the famous Villa-lobos aria (here with soprano & guitar) works well and at a very intimate level, thanks to both performers.

Now to Ravel's Bolero...you wonder how: a 15-18 minute piece into 3' minutes? This is what it is: a guitar introduction into the Bolero's FINALE; with that, the CD is over... with a bang! Oh well. What its NOT mentioned anywhere on is who arranged it and who performed it (apart from Milos' guitar, of course). Then I checked the colorful booklet and found out that the CD tracks come from a mishmash of sessions in the UK and Germany (individual track years not specified) during the 2011, 2012 & 2013. The two Villa-lobos Etudes from 2007(!), and the date of the 'Romance' and 'Fandango' unclear. Sorry, but if I pay full price for a DG release, I would expect the good production values they have given us, collectors, for decades.
Lastly: 45 minutes of music is a bit stingy nowadays when most CDs go from 50 to 80 minutes.

My conclusion: this was put together and launched fast, fast, to exploit the good rap built by Milos and make money fast, fast. Not a very European approach, uh? Two stars down.

it's kind of weak in terms of flow and power? may be too classical music / style oriented?
real clean and professional work for sure, but still... to be honest... I will not take it on a car
or bike ride, but play at bed time...
