Montenegro's musical talent: Miloš Karadaglić

Posted By Explore Montenegro on 01/05/2013

Miloš Karadaglic is a Montenegrin classical guitarist who has helped boost his country’s profile in the realms of classical music.  Described by The Times as “The classical guitar god” we had the privilege of watching him last week as he graced the stage of the Royal Albert Hall.  He was one of very few soloists to perform in front of a captive audience at one of the world’s most famous venues, playing his guitar with three spellbinding performances for Classic FM live.

The concert on 30th April showcased some of the world’s best classical musicians including flautist Sir James Galway, violinist Jennifer Pike and clarinettist Michael Collins accompanied by the London Philharmonia Orchestra who gave  flawless performances in front of a full audience.

Miloš has taken the classical music world by a storm and was introduced as “rather dashing and incredibly talented” before appearing on stage to perform two solos and a duet with Ksenja Sidorova, an accordian player. Milos gave an intimate performance as he guided the audience through the music accompanied by the Philharmonia Orchestra who helped to achieve an understated and beautiful backdrop to the classical guitar.

Thirty year old Milos is from Podgorica, Montenegro’s capital city.  He picked the guitar up at a young age and having quickly discovering an aptitude for it, he met with renowned classical guitarist David Russell who encouraged him to move to London and apply for the Royal Academy of Music. Milos was awarded a scholarship and subsequently achieved a First Class Honours degree as well as a Masters.

Since graduating, Milos has signed to German classical record label Deutsche Grammophon and has released three successful albums, his debut album Guitar /Mediterrano topped the classical music charts and he has since released two more albums, Latino/Pasion and Latino/Gold. Latino/Pasion earned him the Classic Brit MasterCard Breakthrough Artist of the Year. In 2012, Milos performed a t sell-out debut performances and tours includi ng the UK, France, USA, Canada, Japan, Hong Kong and Australia to name a few. His upcoming performances after England include the Czech Republic, Hong Kong and Japan.

We were thoroughly looking forward to meeting him backstage at the after show party, but unfortunately he’d rushed off , quite understandably to celebrate his 30th birthday.
