Described as ‘classical music’s guitar hero’, guitarist MILOŠ is back with his fifth studio album and a UK tour including Horsham.
For his performance next month at The Capitol, Horsham, he will be joined by members of the 12 Ensemble, in a programme showcasing the immense diversity of the guitar: from Spanish classics and Latin American rhythms to Bach, baroque dances and the Beatles: “Whether its Bach or McCartney, Schubert or Paul Simon, it’s all music to me and I love it.”
Classic BRIT Award-winner MILOŠ is the world’s best-known classical guitarist and received unanimous acclaim for his 2016 Beatles album. After suffering from a serious hand injury at the peak of his career, he now makes a much-anticipated return to recording and performing. His new album, ‘Sound of Silence’, was released on Decca Classics on Friday 13 September and is inspired by his journey back to performing, featuring Miloš’ very own takes on songs by Portishead, Radiohead and Leonard Cohen, sitting alongside guitar pieces by Pujol and Tarrega: “This tour and the album are a very personal scrapbook of music that will always have a special meaning to me – from Bach to the Beatles, Granados to Portishead, Piazzolla to Radiohead. It comes after one of the biggest challenges of my life – suffering from a serious physical injury and a mental burnout – this programme is a musical reflection on that time and on my long journey back to full health. It is the music I love above all else.”
Miloš will be signing copies of his new album after the performance.
