Deutsche Grammophon is delighted to announce the signing of an exclusive recording-agreement with guitar virtuoso Miloš Karadagli?.

This young classical guitarist is preparing his début album for release in spring 2011.

Michael Lang, President, Deutsche Grammophon, said, "We're thrilled to work with Miloš - he's a terrific talent, an engaging personality - and we know the time is now to re-establish the classical guitar in the world of music. Miloš is the one."

The début album by Miloš will pay tribute to the guitarist's own Mediterranean roots. Featuring music from his Montenegro homeland and from the Balkans and Spain, and by composers such as Granados, Domeniconi and Albéniz, the recording will explore the Euro-Arabian world that his instrument has come from.

Born in Montenegro in 1983, Miloš has already established himself as one of today's most gifted guitar virtuosos. He began playing the guitar at the age of eight, and quickly won national recognition for his performances. At sixteen, he was awarded a scholarship to study at the Royal Academy of Music where, after graduating with First Class Honors, he went on to complete a Masters degree in Performance.

Miloš said of his signing: "Deutsche Grammophon is a home to many of my musical idols. When I was a child, I remember listening to the great guitarist, Andrés Segovia, and dreaming that one day I, too, might have such a career. Now it is becoming a reality and my dreams are being fulfilled more quickly than I could possibly have imagined. I am honored and excited to begin my collaboration with this fantastic label and hope, through my playing, that I will bring the guitar to a new generation of listeners."

iTunes Festival: London 2010

This past July, Miloš participated in the London-wide iTunes Festival by giving a short concert. This performance was captured live and is now available exclusively on iTunes. This short concert is but a small sampling of what is to come from Miloš but already shows his technical skill and musical personality. Included are short works by Albéniz, Bach, Villa-Lobos, Mangoré, Domeniconi and Ginastera.
