If you scroll through my recent posts, you’ll find several links to posts on NPR Music by Tom Huizenga. When the festival is over, I’ll try to put one post here with links to all my SMF ramblings.
But here’s another NPR piece from a couple of days ago: Milos Karadaglic And The Power Of A Dusty Old Guitar.
There seems to be a kink in the NPR website at the moment that’s preventing me from scrolling through all the text, but the link to listen to the performance seems to be working just fine.
Here’s what the SMF program online had to say about Karadaglic and his performance in Savannah:
This is the Savannah debut of Montenegro born, 27-year old prize-winning guitarist Milos Karadaglic, who has established himself as one of today’s most gifted young classical guitar virtuosos. A darling of the 2011 BBC Proms, Milos recent engagements have also included recital debuts at Wigmore Hall in London and the Lucerne Festival, and concerto debuts with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and English Chamber Orchestra.
And here’s a great video of Karadaglic performing a Tiny Desk Concert on NPR:
