‘The music on this CD reflects my character. It tells the listener who I am.’ Miloš Karadaglić
Charismatic guitarist Miloš Karadaglić debuts on Deutsche Grammophon with an album saluting his instrument’s Mediterranean heritage. Born in the Balkan state of Montenegro, Miloš’s love-affair with the guitar began when he was eight, when his father played him a recording of Segovia making magic with Albeniz’s ‘Asturias’. Miloš gave his first public performance at nine, entered (and won) his first national competition at eleven. He became a star performer on television and radio, took guitar master-classes in Belgrade, and then, shortly after the end of the Balkan war, decided to try for a scholarship at London’s Royal Academy of Muisic.
Miloš’s choices of solo repertoire as well as music for guitar and orchestra are guaranteed to appeal to all lovers of guitar, classical and non-classical alike.

by Phil Richards, Readings Carlton
Milos Karadaglic (pronounced: Mee-losh Kah-rah-dag-lich) is the new rising star of the classical guitar. His first CD is a mixture of pieces from Albeniz, Tarrega, Domeniconi, Theodorakis, Llobet and Granados. Many of these works have been performed before, but don’t let that deter you; his performance is of the highest calibre. His playing is a well-balanced combination of strength, delicate touch and outstanding musicality. This is a very assured recording for a debut. This musician with the movie-star good looks is here to stay – that I am sure of.
