Hugh Millington is a classical guitarist who has performed in many solo and ensemble recitals across the UK, including at the Wigmore Hall and Kings Place in London. With a strong interest for 19th-century music, Hugh regularly performs using a number of different period guitars, and it is on this subject that he gives a range of lecture-recitals exploring the guitar in the 19th-century. Most notably, this includes a performance at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in Israel (2018) as part of the Orit Wolf Concert Lecture Series.
Hugh works regularly in the Miyabi Duo with Japanese guitarist Saki Kato, with whom he will perform his third recital at the Wigmore Hall in June 2020, having performed twice in their ‘For Crying out Loud’ series in 2019. As a duo they have worked with several British composers, including Judith Bingham, Timothy Bowers, Edward Cowie, and Geoffrey Poole.
Hugh is currently an MPhil student at the University of Cambridge, where, as a member of Sidney Sussex College, he was awarded the Waldmann Music Prize. He previously studied with a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music, where he graduated in 2019 with first class honours, having been awarded the John McAslan Prize and the Timothy Gilson Guitar Prize.
