Firmly positioned as a leading exponent of his instrument, “The hottest guitarist in the world” (Sunday Times), Miloš Karadaglić continues to top record charts and delight audiences worldwide. His first three releases on Deutsche Grammophon achieved major chart successes around the globe and turned him into “classical music’s guitar hero” (BBC Music Magazine) overnight. Miloš has appeared in recital at almost all major concert halls and festivals around the globe and has worked with many of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors. He is also the first ever classical guitarist to have performed in solo recital at the Royal Albert Hall in London, The Guardian commenting: “More extraordinary by far, however, was the way a single guitarist... could shrink the Hall’s cavernous space into something so close.”
In August 2018, Miloš returned to the Royal Albert Hall with the BBC Symphony Orchestra to give the world premiere of ‘Ink Dark Moon’, an exciting new guitar concerto written for Miloš by Joby Talbot. The performance, part of the 2018 BBC Proms, was received with great enthusiasm, with BachTrack commenting that “Karadaglić provided a supremely tailored performance, exploring the full range of sounds and colours.”
In the 2018/19 season, Miloš will curate a musical journey through the repertoire that has been most important to him so far in his life and career. Titled “The Voice of the Guitar”, this programme will see him perform solo and with various ensembles throughout the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia and the United States. “No other guitarist can match his graceful blend of personal charisma and technical finesse.” (The Independent)
Miloš remains committed to commissioning new repertoire, especially when it comes to the repertoire for guitar and orchestra. 2018/19 will include another concerto world premiere of Howard Shore’s first ever guitar concerto, which was commissioned for Miloš by the National Arts Centre Orchestra Ottawa and Alexander Shelley. Born in Montenegro in 1983, Miloš first started playing the guitar at the age of 8. At 16, he successfully applied for a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music and moved to London where he continues to live while keeping close ties with his family and homeland. He was appointed a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music in 2015. In 2016 BBC Music magazine included him amongst six of the greatest classical guitarists of the last century.
