Savannah Music Festival LIVE 517 – Milos Karadaglic

Coming from a homeland with no real classical guitar tradition and a population of only 600,000, the challenges faced by Milos Karadaglic in climbing the international guitar-playing ladder were daunting. War was happening all around his homeland in Montenegro, but because he came from a musical family and his parents loved music, they encouraged his talent. At the age of 14 he made his concert hall debut, and shortly thereafter he met guitarist David Russell, who advised that his talent would be best served by studying at the Royal Academy of Music in London. In this episode, we listen to a 2012 recital given by Mr. Karadaglic in the Telfair Academy of Arts & Sciences during the Savannah Music Festival.
