Ana Vidovic

Ana Vidovic is a young and beautiful Croatian guitarist who was a child phenom, giving concerts since the age of seven. She has studied with the best and perfected her technique but it is not her technique that makes her music special, it is the feeling that she expresses through her music. No where is this more apparent than in her performance of Milonga del angel in today's video which was made at the Zuidlaren Guitar Festival. The video begins with Verano Porteño (thanks to blog reader Pedro for identifying the tune correctly) which is done well, particularly the slow middle part of the piece, but it is in her slow and graceful treatment of the Milonga that her musical gifts really become apparent. None of her CD's cover the music of Piazzolla but with the quality of these performances, let's hope there is one on the way.

Note the "Part 1" in the title of this video. There is a Part 2 and it is equally good. I suggest you sample it after you view the video below.

  1. I don't think the first piece is Invierno Porteño.

  2. Pedro,

    Now that I listen more carefully, you are correct. Is it Otono Porteno or am I trying to force this into one of the seasons and it is something else?


  3. Why don't you watch this other video you have posted:
