Miloš Karadaglić – the superstar musician who has led today’s classical guitar revival – begins a new era in his exceptional career with a debut album for Sony Classical. Titled simply “Baroque,” the album presents his carefully curated selection of Baroque works especially transcribed and arranged for the guitar, both solo and in collaboration with Jonathan Cohen and his ensemble Arcangelo. Karadaglić’s own transcription of Bach’s monumental Chaconne sits at the heart of this recording, anchoring the richly varied constellation of Baroque composers’ masterpieces. He particularly wanted to present the guitar across a wide range of European influences, and not merely within the more familiar Spanish context. He has selected luminescent works by nine composers here, the majority of which have never been played on solo guitar before.
