Editorial Reviews

Award-winning classical guitarist Milos Karadaglic makes his debut in Bangkok with a concert at Thailand Cultural Centre on July 3 at 8pm.

Few young concert artists have been hailed with the superlatives accorded to 30-year-old Milos Karadaglic.

Already one of the hottest properties in classical music and an exclusive recording artist for Deutsche Grammophon, Karadaglic is destined to join the pantheon of great guitarists _ Andres Segovia, Julian Bream and John Williams.

Next month will see the debut Bangkok concert by this guitar sensation from Montenegro as he is set to perform at the next "Great Artists Concert Series 2013" in the main hall of Thailand Cultural Centre on July 3 at 8pm.

He will perform the ever-popular Concierto De Aranjuez by the Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo and the short Spanish Romance featured on his debut album Mediterraneo.

Karadaglic will be accompanied by the Bangkok Symphony Orchestra conducted by Antoine Marguier.

The all-Spanish programme will also feature works by Arriaga, Gimenez and music from three suites by Manuel de Falla _ La Vida Breve, The Three-Cornered Hat and El Amor Brujo. A citizen of Montenegro, Karadaglic grew up against the background of the Balkan civil war. At age 16 he won a scholarship to London's Royal Academy of Music. He has won many prizes, including the Julian Bream Prize, the Prince's Prize, and the Ivor Mairants Guitar Award.

His debut was one of the best-selling classical albums of 2011 and at the prestigious Gramophone awards that year he won both the Young Artist of the Year and Specialist Classical Chart awards.

Since his stunning debut concert, Karadaglic has appeared at New York's Carnegie Hall, at the Lucerne Festival, and performed with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Zurich Tonhalle and London Philharmonic Orchestras, among many others.

A TV documentary, Milos: Heartstrings, filmed last year, charts the guitarist's story to date and has been released on DVD and will air on TV this year.


Tickets for the concert start at 500 baht from Thai Ticket Major (tel 02-262-3456 or visit www.thaiticketmajor.com) and The BSO Shop at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (tel 02-214-3757).
