As a classical guitarist, Miloš Karadaglić was reared in the strict and serious tradition of Bach, Segovia, and other classical guitar masters. But there's a branch of modern music in which he experiences similar challenges and just as rewarding of an experience. His latest project, Blackbird - The Beatles Album, released on January 15th, 2016, reflects his BBC claim: that "the Beatles are as important as Bach" when it comes to western music canon. In comparing the Beatles to Bach (whose lute suites are some of the most challenging works for modern guitar), Miloš assured the BBC that he was "never worried" his Beatles project would become "something light - because I'm not light, nor is the music."
Emanuele Torrente has a musical mind, at least that's the way he likes describe it. The Italian born classical guitarist has very definite ideas where about where music is going and where he feels it should be going. An accomplished musician as well as composer and musical theorist, Maestro Torrente has a new album Musical Mind, which you can download from his site. Classicalite caught up with him to talk about the album and music in general.
