Hugh Millington is a classical guitarist, who has performed in many solo recitals, ensemble concerts, and festivals around the U.K., including at the London Guitar Festival, West Dean Guitar Festival, Winchester Guitar Festival, and Menuhin Hall. 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 different lecture-recitals exploring the guitar in the 19th Century. Most notably, this has led to him giving such a performance at the Tel Aviv Museum of Art in Israel (2018) as part of the Orit Wolf Concert Lecture Series.
In 2017, Hugh first worked with composer Timothy Bowers on the Five Interludes for Guitar, before giving the world premiere performance Kent, and later the London premiere at the Angela Burgess Recital Hall, Royal Academy of Music. These pieces were published in January 2019, with Hugh as the editor.
Originally from Nottingham, Hugh regularly performs in the East Midlands, and has appeared there on numerous occasions as a concerto soloist with orchestra, performing concertos by Giuliani, Carulli, and Vivaldi.
Hugh is currently studying with a scholarship at the Royal Academy of Music, where he studies with Michael Lewin, David Russell, and Fabio Zanon, as well as having studied with numerous others in both masterclasses and private lessons.
Upcoming performances include a concert at the Royal Academy of Music featuring the Guitar Quartet by renowned Austrian composer Georg Friedrich Haas, with whom Hugh’s ensemble will be working prior to the performance.
