Product details

"Rouge Guitar was made in four sessions and the DVD was recorded within three hours. I didn't want magic effects, just the purity of the music to shine through, along with breathing and creaking chairs. It is what makes the recording special." Milica Ilic, 2005

Milica Ilic [pronounced Mel-itza Ill-itch] is a classical guitarist who plays a living music that's vibrant, colourful, impassioned and her own. In 2002, when she was just 20 years old, Milica's dazzling musicality and alluring stage presence led to an invitation from the great tenor José Carreras to participate in his birthday celebration concert at Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia. Her performance on that occasion, as on many others since then, was warmly received and critically acclaimed.

Milica is a skilled interpreter of the standard classical repertoire, yet from an early age she has understood that technique is far more than merely a means to replicate familiar material. For Milica technique is a key that unlocks expression, connecting the performance of music to our shared and varied life of sensations and emotions, to memories and aspirations. Now in her mid-twenties she already has a wealth of vivid experience to draw upon in her creative life. From that springs music that's fiery and beautiful, tender, uplifting and intimate.

Milica has toured extensively in Australia, Asia and Europe. In 2005 she performed at international guitar festivals in Darwin, Ullapool, Kirkmichael and Ards. She also featured as special guest at a festival in Windsor, UK, hosted by Tommy Emmanuel, Australia's premier guitarist. In 2003 she took up an invitation to perform as guest soloist at "An Unforgettable Evening - José Carreras in Concert' in Perth, Western Australia. The previous year Milica had accompanied José Carreras in Singapore, as well as at Angkor Wat, and was a featured soloist with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra.
