Performer Biography

Miloš is one of the world’s most celebrated classical guitarists. His career began its meteoric rise in 2011, with the release of his international best-selling Deutsche Grammophon debut album Mediterraneo. Since then, he has earned legions of fans, awards, and acclaim around the world through his extensive touring, six chart-topping recordings, and television appearances.

Now exclusive to SONY Classical, Miloš is committed to expanding the repertoire for the classical guitar. His new album, simply entitled Baroque, was released October 2023 and presents a carefully curated selection of baroque works especially transcribed and arranged for the guitar, both solo and in collaboration with Jonathan Cohen and his ensemble Arcangelo. Equally passionate about new music, Miloš’s latest release, The Moon and the Forest, features two world premiere concerti by Howard Shore and Joby Talbot.

Over the past decade, the instrument’s popularity has exploded thanks to Miloš’ pioneering approach. Aspiring guitarists can even learn from him through Schott’s Play Guitar with Miloš series. In 2016 BBC Music Magazine included him in their list of ‘Six of the Best Classical Guitarists of the past century’.

Miloš has appeared as a soloist with some of the world’s greatest orchestras: London and LA Philharmonics, Atlanta Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Orquesta Nacional de España, Santa Cecilia Rome and NHK Tokyo. His first sold-out solo recital in the round of the Royal Albert Hall was lauded by the critics and caused a worldwide sensation. He returned to the hall post-pandemic in June 2022 to a full-capacity audience.

Other recent and forthcoming highlights include debuts with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony and Alain Altinoglu for the annual Europe Open Air concert, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Korean National Symphony; return performances with the Atlanta and Detroit Symphonies, Orchestre Métropolitain in Montreal, Hallé Orchestra, Graz and London Philharmonics; extensive tours across the UK, US and Australia, as well as recitals in Munich, London, Hong Kong and the Verbier, Caramoor, Gstaad and Schleswig Holstein Music Festivals.

A passionate advocate for music education, Miloš is an active patron of numerous charities supporting young musicians in the UK and abroad. He recently launched the “Miloš Karadaglić Foundation”—based in Porto Montenegro, this philanthropic organization aims to act as a regional hub of influence by empowering artistic excellence though various educational opportunities, partnerships and close mentorship.

Born in Montenegro in 1983, Miloš moved to London to study at the Royal Academy of Music at the age of 17. He continues to live and work in London while keeping close ties to his homeland. He performs on a 2017 Greg Smallman guitar.
