Born in Montenegro in 1983 and a multiple prize-winner, Miloš Karadaglić has established himself as one of today's most gifted young guitar virtuosos. In July 2010 he signed an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon, and his first recording, The Guitar, was released spring 2011.
Growing up during the time of the Balkan civil war, Miloš began playing the guitar at the age of 8 and very quickly won national recognition for his performances. At 16 he was awarded a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music where, after graduating with First Class Honours, he went on to complete a Masters degree in Performance and was subsequently made a Meaker Junior Fellow - the first guitarist to be given this accolade at the Royal Academy.
Miloš's engagements have included solo recital debuts at the Wigmore Hall in London and the Lucerne Festival, and concerto debuts with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and English Chamber Orchestra. Other appearances have included the Cheltenham and Spitalfields Festivals, the Menuhin Festival in Gstaad, and the 2010 iTunes Festival in London - the first time the festival had staged a classical event. Upcoming engagements include recitals at Wigmore Hall, Brighton Festival, and BOCA Festival of the Arts.
Miloš uses D'Addario J 46 strings and a 2007 guitar by Greg Smallman, kindly lent to him by Paul and Jenny Gillham.
