Milos: Passion, Poise, and Promise

The stunning success of 29-year-old classical guitar virtuoso Milos Karadaglic is validated after the first notes of Pasion, his second Deutsche Grammophon release. Known simply as "Milos," the guitarist's technical expertise and respect for the music he loves enhances the beauty of a varied menu of popular folk and challenging classical selections.
