About Miloš: Firmly positioned as a leading exponent of his instrument, Miloš has appeared in some of the most important concert halls and at major festivals around the world, including with the Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, LA Philharmonic, and Cleveland Orchestra.
His first three releases on Deutsche Grammophon achieved chart-topping successes around the globe and turned him into “classical music’s guitar hero” (BBC Music Magazine) overnight. His recording of Rodrigo’s concerto with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the London Philharmonic had the Sunday Times calling him “The King of Aranjuez”, while his record, Blackbird–The Beatles Album — including duets with Gregory Porter, Tori Amos, Steven Isserlis, and Anoushka Shankar – was released to unanimous praise. Miloš’ 2019 album, Sound of Silence, joined his previous albums, in reaching No. 1 on the UK Classical charts, and on Amazon.
Miloš is the first ever classical guitarist to have performed in solo recital at the Royal Albert Hall in London, the Guardian commenting: “More extraordinary by far was the way a single guitarist could shrink the Hall’s cavernous space into something so close.” The Independent concluded: “not only a magician, but a serious and accomplished musician”.
In August 2018 Miloš made a triumphant return to the hall. In front of 6000 people at the BBC Proms, he performed the world premiere of Joby Talbot’s guitar concerto, Ink Dark Moon written especially for him, with the BBC Symphony Orchestra.
Future performances include the Atlanta Symphony with the Talbot, a coast to coast tour of the U.S. with ‘Voice of the Guitar’, Miloš’ personally curated program of works from Bach to the Beatles with the 12 Ensemble and solo recitals in many of the world’s great halls.
Committed to commissioning new repertoire for the guitar, Miloš joined the NAC Orchestra in Ottawa in May 2019 to perform the world premiere of The Forest by Howard Shore. The concerto was recorded and will be released on Decca along with the Talbot Concerto in 2020.
Born in Montenegro in 1983, Miloš left his country age 16 to pursue a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He was recently appointed a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music, and BBC Music magazine included him amongst six of the greatest classical guitarists of the last century.
