World-class guitar soloist

Miloš is a star musician who has breathed new life into the classical guitar. He is now performing Baroque music at the Oslo Opera House!

An ever-rising star

Miloš’ career has moved in one direction since releasing his debut album Mediterraneo in 2011: straight upwards. His fanbase is global and growing in numbers, as is the list of awards and distinctions he has received. He has toured around the world, recorded six best-selling albums and made countless TV appearances.

In 2023, he expanded his repertoire for classical guitar with his new album – and as the title Baroque suggests, he presents a selection of Baroque works transcribed and arranged for the guitar. He will be performing several of these works at the Oslo Opera House, tailored to a solo recital – the perfect way to recharge before the start of the hectic holiday season.

We also get to hear Agustín Barrios Mangoré’s masterpiece La Catedral from 1921 and to conclude the performance, the reasonably recent Amor Fati by French composer Mathias Duplessy.

Amazingly talented guitarist

In the past decade, the popularity of classical guitar has skyrocketed – largely due to MILOŠ’ pioneering approach. In 2016, BBC Music Magazine named him one of the six best classical guitarists of the last 100 years.

This London-based guitarist from Montenegro has performed as a soloist with several of the world’s greatest orchestras, including the philharmonic orchestras in London and Los Angeles, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Cleveland Orchestra. He has sold out the Royal Albert Hall several times, to the acclaim of critics and audiences alike.

He is now coming to Oslo and the Oslo Opera House in December, when we will finally have the chance to be dazzled by Miloš Karadaglić and his incomparable guitar playing.

About Miloš Hide Show more

Miloš Karadaglić (born in 1983), better known under the mononym MILOŠ, was born in Montenegro. He moved to London at the age of 17 to study at the Royal Academy of Music, where he still lives to this very day.

Since his career began to take off in 2011, he has been recognised as one of the world’s most brilliant classical guitarists. The previous year, he signed an exclusive recording contract with the legendary Deutsche Grammofon. He is currently associated with SONY Classical and has several best-selling recordings to his name.

MILOŠ has sold out several of the world’s most famous concert halls and performed as a soloist with international orchestras and at major festivals around the world.

His early albums Mediterraneo and Latino were a rousing success and the recording of his concerts with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin from 2014 earned him the nickname ‘The King of Aranjuez’ by The Sunday Times. 'Blackbird – The Beatles Album' was met with unanimous praise when it was released in 2016. His fifth studio album, ‘Sound of Silence’, released in 2019 and which includes new arrangements of classical repertoire as well as affectionate references to pop music, was also received with the same enthusiasm.

MILOŠ continues to embrace new work for classical guitar and consolidate his role as a pioneer and innovator of modern guitar repertoire. He takes advantage of every opportunity to promote classical music to the widest possible audience, which is why he often serves as a radio and television presenter. MILOŠ is passionate about music education and is a patron of the Mayor of London’s Fund for Young Musicians and Awards for Young Musicians. Incidentally, he plays a Greg Smallman guitar from 2018.
