Classical guitarist Ana Vidovic is interviewed in the August 2007 issue of Guitar Player magazine. I’m glad to see that she is getting mainstream recognition. I first heard about Ana several years ago when I was shopping for a new classical guitar. She happened to be touring through town at the time, so I had the opportunity to see her in concert, and it was fantastic. Her technique was flawless, but not to the point of taking away from the musicality of the selections. In other words, you noticed the music more than her technique, which isn’t the case with all classical guitarists.
Ana has a new CD being released on July 31 featuring the music of Frederico Moreno Torroba. You can view information about the CD on the Naxos Web site. You can view a video of Ana playing Isaac Albeniz’s Asturias on YouTube.
If you get a chance to see Ana in concert, I’d recommend doing so.
