“Lovers of the classical guitar have a new hero in the young Miloš” (Telegraph, London), Cal Performances presents his recital debut, Tuesday, February 19, at 8:00 p.m. in First Congregational Church. The program will feature works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Heitor Villa-Lobos, Jorge Morel, Jorge Cardoso, Isaias Savio, Agustín Barrios and Carlo Domeniconi. Though the repertoire begins and ends in the European tradition, the heart of this concert is drawn from his 2012 album, Latino, filled with intensely passionate music for classical guitar by South American composers. “[The] Latin American program . . . is outstanding in its finesse, warm sensuality and sheer beauty” says The Daily Telegraph, London.
Miloš Karadaglic, professionally known by his first name, was born in Montenegro in 1983, and began studying the guitar at eight years-old. Six years later, he began performing in major concert halls. At 16, he won a scholarship to study with Michael Lewin at the Royal Academy of Music (RAM) in London and graduated with First Class Honours in 2004. He continued his studies with a two-year Masters degree in Performance.
His recent recital appearances include Wigmore Hall, Théatre des Champs-Elysées, Carnegie Hall and the Lucerne Festival, and concerto engagements with the London Philharmonic and English Chamber Orchestras. He has released three albums with the Deutsche Grammophon label and was named Gramophone’s Young Artist of the Year in 2011. In 2012, he won the Mastercard Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the Classic BRIT Awards at London’s Royal Albert Hall and was honored the Associate of the Royal Academy of Music title for his contribution to the music profession.
