The Voice of Guitar
NEC’s Jordan Hall

Since guitar phenom Milos Karadaglic wowed Celebrity Series audiences with his 2013 performance his career has taken flight. His first three releases on Deutsche Grammophon achieved major chart successes around the globe and turned him into “classical music’s guitar hero” (BBC Music Magazine) overnight. His 2014 recording of Rodrigo’s concertos had the Sunday Times calling him “The King of Aranjuez”, while Blackbird – The Beatles Album (2016) was received with unanimous acclaim. For this program, Milos plays a wide-ranging program from J.S. Bach and Granados to Piazzolla and the Beatles in a chamber music setting with string quartet and quintet.
