Edin Karamazov, a Bosnian lutenist and protégé of the legendary conductor Sergiu Celibidache, began his musical career with the classical guitar, continuing his studies of the Baroque Lute at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis.

His 2003 recording Come Heavy Sleep set new standards for lute playing and, as a soloist, he has performed and recorded with leading international early music ensembles and artists including the Hilliard Ensemble, Hesperion XX, Mala Punica and Andreas Scholl.

Newly signed as an exclusive Decca artist, Edin Karamazov’s first recording on the label will be released this Autumn; entitled The Lute is a Song, the album traces 400 years of lute music from the Renaissance to the present day and features guest artists Kaliopi, Andreas Scholl, Sting and Renée Fleming.
