Miloš Karadaglić, the leading classical guitarist of his generation, attracted special attention globally with his debut album The Guitar, in 2011. He started learning guitar at the age of eight, and at the age of sixteen he enrolled at the Royal Academy of Music in London. As a soloist, he has performed with leading world ensembles such as the Los Angeles, Munich, and Czech Philharmonic Orchestras, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the National Symphony Orchestras of Cleveland, Philadelphia, Spain, Washington, and Japan. He held numerous recitals in famous halls and at many of the most important festivals in Europe, Japan, and the USA, as well as performed concerts in non-traditional spaces - in chamber ambiences and large halls, such as London's Royal Albert Hall, in front of three thousand visitors. As an exclusive artist of Deutsche Gramophone, he has recorded several albums, and the last Blackbird: The Beatles Album was released by Mercury Classics / Deutsche Gramophone in 2016. He also recorded the soundtrack for the animated film When Marnie Was There (Studio Ghibli, 2014). Additionally, he released a series of four books for learning classical guitar - Play Guitar with Miloš, in 2018, published by Schott Music.
Avi Avital, the first mandolinist to be nominated for a classical Grammy, has performed more than a hundred contemporary works written for him, fifteen of which are concerts by Anna Clyne, Avner Dorman, and Giovanni Sollima. He premiered Sollima’s Mandolin Concerto with the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della RAI. As a soloist, Avi Avital has performed with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Deutsche Symphonie Orchester Berlin, the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, the Israel Philharmonic, the Dresden Philharmonic, the Detroit Symphony, the Seattle Symphony, and the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, among others. He regularly performs at major festivals such as Aspen, Salzburg, Spoleto, Ravenna, and Verbier, to name just a few. Avi Avital began learning the mandolin at the age of eight. He studied at the Jerusalem Music Academy and the Cesare Pollini Conservatory in Padua. He was the winner of the Israel’s prestigious Aviv Competition in 2007 and the first mandolinist in the history of the competition to be awarded. An exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist, Avi Avital has recorded five albums with compositions of different styles. He plays a mandolin made by Israeli luthier Arik Kerman.
