By popular demand, Limelight is delighted to welcome back the magnificent Miloš Karadaglic, who first performed in April 2011. Appearing alongside Miloš will be accordionist Ksenija Sidorova and the Alicja Smietana Ensemble - internationally renowned artists making their Limelight debuts.
Born in Montenegro, with no classical guitar tradition and a population of only 600,000, Miloš stunned the world by quickly establishing himself as THE young guitar virtuoso of his generation. A first class graduate from the Royal Academy of Music, he went on to win the Prince's Prize, from HRH Prince Charles - the first awarded to a guitarist.
In July 2011, Miloš signed an exclusive record deal with Deutsche Grammophon, and has since released two albums: The Guitar and Mediterraneo. His Limelight appearance marks the launch of his much anticipated latest album, Latino.
"For those of us who heard Milos' Wigmore Hall recital last year, the impending stardom of this remarkable musician will come as no surprise." The Independent
"The silver lining was Ksenija Sidorova [...], for she has the ability to steal a musical heart." The Telegraph
"While working with Alicja Smietana, I found not only a brilliant musician, but a colleague interested primarily in the greater good of music." Nigel Kennedy
Limelight is the longest running classical club night in central London, and has gained rave reviews from artists, audience members and critics alike. Since July 2009 it has presented classical music in London's legendary jazz bar, the 100 Club, believed to be the oldest live music venue in the city and once frequented by the likes of Louis Armstrong and Billie Holiday.

‘It was an amazing evening, rather like the salons of old brought up to date." John Suchet, Classic FM
"The idea is inspired, showing that you don't need the austerity of a concert hall for brilliant music making." Oliver Condy, editor, BBC Music Magazine
‘Limelight avoids the tedium of a restaurant, the horror of a ‘gig' and the pole-up-your-arse stiffness of most classical venues, and provides something genuinely original, fun and really rather classy,' while Classic FM's John Suchet said, ‘It was an amazing evening, rather like the salons of old brought up to date.'
