Tim Smith from the Baltimore Sun describes Ana Vidovic as a “major artist in the classical guitar world. Her appearance at An die Musik reconfirmed why. She has a finely honed technique and a remarkable stylistic sensitivity that allows her to communicate eloquently.
I caught the first half of her sold-out recital, which included two of the greatest hits from the guitar repertoire, Tarrega’s “Recuerdos de la Alhambra” and Albeniz’s “Asturias,” both delivered with a deliciously subtle range of expressive coloring. A sampling of Piazzolla’s seductive work inspired sensual playing. Vidovic brought a spontaneous touch to three of Toru Takemitsu’s disarming arrangements of pop songs, including the Doris Day classic “Secret Love.”
It was also great to hear Stanley Myers’ “Cavatina,” the bittersweet gem used as the main theme in the riveting film “The Deer Hunter,” played so tenderly.”
