World Premiere of Howard Shore's <em>The Forest</em>

On May 1-2, guitarist Miloš Karadaglić gave the world premiere of Howard Shore's new guitar concerto The Forest under the baton of conductor Alexander Shelley with the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa, Canada. Shore's new concerto was commissioned by Alexander Shelley and the National Arts Centre Orchestra especially for Milos Karadaglić. 

Shore was particularly delighted to be asked to compose a new work for the dynamic young guitarist. The composer noted, “I am so very pleased to premiere the guitar concerto The Forest, a piece composed for the brilliant artistry of Miloš, Alexander Shelley and the great National Arts Centre Orchestra.”
