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 through commissioning of new works. His latest release ‘The Moon and the Forest’ features two world premiere concertos, by Howard Shore and Joby Talbot. His new solo album is due for a released in 2023 and will explore the theme of baroque and its guitar repertoire treasures.
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 Philharmonic, Atlanta Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Chicago Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Orquesta Nacional de España, Santa Cecilia Rome, NHK Tokyo. His sold-out solo recital in the round of the Royal Albert Hall was lauded by the critics and caused worldwide sensation. He returned to the hall post-pandemic in June 2022 to a full capacity audience.
Other recent and forthcoming highlights include Verbier Festival, Schleswig Holstein Music Festival, recitals in New York, London, Washington DC, concertos with Atlanta and Detroit Symphony Orchestras, Orchestre Métropolitain in Montreal, The Hallé Orchestra, Graz and London Philharmonic, as well as tours in Australia, Europe and the US. This year he will also make his concerto debut in Paris with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, playing Howard Shore’s concerto ‘The Forest’.
A passionate advocate for music education, MILOŠ is an active patron of numerous charities supporting young musicians in the UK and abroad.
Born in Montenegro in 1983, he 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.
