This review is from: Latino Gold (Audio CD)
Milos is still only thirty, but he has some history in recording success; in 2011 he topped the charts with his debut release The Guitar and won the Gramophone Young Artist of the Year award on the back of it.
Acclaim for Milos has been world-wide, but unlike many artists who have a foot in both the pop and classical camps, he continues to receive overwhelmingly positive reviews in the classical music press.
All this is of course made all the more remarkable given his background growing up in a Balkans ravaged by conflict: overcoming all the odds, he managed somehow to win a place at the Royal Academy in London and from there his career flourished.
Latino Gold is essentially a re-issue of the bestselling Latino with an added half-hour or so of new material with a Latin slant. But what a half-hour: Milos again demonstrates that he's equally comfortable in dinner jacket or jeans, with smokily evocative repertoire ranging from Ravel to the soundtrack for Motorcycle Diaries. Milos notes in the booklet that South American music is 'even more uninhibited than Spanish', and this album is permeated by the rhythm of the dance; it beats as surely as the Mexican sun.
