At the age of 28, guitarist Milos Karadaglic is a rising star in the classical music world. “Young Artist of the Year,” according to the Gramophone Awards in London. Milos is an advocate for his instrument, wanting the guitar to regain its profile in the classical world. He wouldn’t mind wooing some rock audiences, too, and why not? He’s darkly handsome, charismatic and his fingernails are as sharp as daggers.
Fresh from his Carnegie Hall debut, Milos talks with "Quick Hits" host Marco Werman about being inspired by the legendary Andres Segovia while growing up in Montenegro in the ‘90s during the Balkan wars. He also performs four beautiful pieces, at the nearby Klavierhaus recital hall and on a bench in Central Park.
Don't miss other Quick Hits starring Piers Faccini, Abigail Washburn, Seun Kuti, Dengue Fever, Charles Bradley & Sharon Jones, Helene Grimaud, Jovanotti, KT Tunstall, Meklit Hadero, Ozomatli, and Seu Jorge. For more info visit Sound Tracks's site.
