A few words about Miloš Karadaglić
One of the hottest properties in classical music and an exclusive Deutsche Gramophone recording artist, MILOS is Gramophone Young Artist of the Year, Echo Klassic Newcomer of the Year and Classic Brit Breakthrough Artist of the Year. His debut album The Guitar/Mediterráneo topped classical charts around the world in 2011 and sold over 150,000 copies. His eagerly-awaited follow-up, Latino/Pasión, has just been released.
In September 2012 MILOS gave a solo recital at Londons Royal Albert Hall which was attended by 3,000 people and described by the Guardian newspaper as a hypnotic and quite extraordinary evening. The 2012/13 also sees him make debuts at the BBC Proms, Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Zurich Tonhalle, and with the Atlanta Symphony, NHK Symphony, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Royal Scottish National Orchestra and Indianapolis Symphony. He will also embark on major recital tours of the US, Canada, Germany, Australia and Japan.
Other recent appearances have included recitals at the Wigmore Hall, Théatre des Champs-Elysées, Carnegie Hall and Lucerne Festival, and concerto engagements with the London Philharmonic and English Chamber Orchestras.
MILOS has also enjoyed great success outside of the traditional concert hall with performances at the Camden Roundhouse for the iTunes Festival, Limelight at the 100 Club, and Deutsche Grammophons Yellow Lounge club nights in London, Berlin, Amsterdam and Seoul.
Born in Montenegro in 1983, Milos Karadaglić grew up against the background of the Balkan civil war. He began learning the guitar at the age of 8 and quickly rose to national prominence before winning a scholarship to Londons Royal Academy of Music aged 16. He has been the recipient of many prizes, including the Julian Bream Prize, the Princes Prize, and the Ivor Mairants Guitar Award. He is a Patron of the Mayor of Londons Fund for Young Musicians and the charity Awards for Young Musicians.
MILOS uses D'Addario J 46 strings and a 2007 guitar by Greg Smallman, kindly lent to him by Paul and Jenny Gillham.
