Events and Shows, In The Cooler, Interviews

Miloš Karadaglić, at Cheltenham Town Hall, Monday 1st October 2018

Miloš Karadaglić, is firmly positioned as a leading exponent of his instrument, “The hottest guitarist in the world” (Sunday Times), andcontinues to top record charts and delight audiences worldwide.

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.

“In The Cooler” was able to have a few words with Miloš just before his Cheltenham Town Hall Concert….(with Ensemble 7)
