Karmen’s debut album «First» will take you on a journey of the intimate, yet powerful sound of the classical guitar.
This album includes some of Karmen's favourite renowned pieces written for the classical guitar from renaissance to the 21st century – from Spanish composers such as Rodrigo, Aguado and Milán through Frank Martin’s expressive suite of the early 20th century Quatre pièces brèves and back to her slavic roots through the music of two Slovenian composers (Srebotnjak and Rojko) and Variations on a Theme by Scriabin written by Polish composer Alexandre Tansman.
“Can you guess why I love this CD so much? Is it Karmen's musicianship? Her extensive tonal palette? Her dynamic range? I do love all those things, but what I love most is that the album is a tour de force of programming. Karmen makes each piece part of a larger story and in so doing gives it more life than it would have on its own. Whatever you have heard before will become new. Don't even consider buying one or two tracks on iTunes. Buy the whole CD, find a quiet block of time, and listen to it all. You will be amazed.”
