David Milsom

This is a bit of an 'outside my area' blog post as I want to share with everyone the work of violinist David Milsom. I was introduced to him by James Bacon of Go To Design (who is himself a stunning pianist) and cutting to the quick I want to share David's work with the world.

David by day is a mild mannered Head of Performance in the music department of the University of Huddersfield :) .  In the words from his "About page" on his website
  "David Milsom (B.Mus, Hons., M.Mus., PhD, FHEA) is a violinist, violist, musicologist, lecturer, reviewer and instrumental teacher, based in Sheffield and Huddersfield. He holds the post of Head of Performance in the music department of the University of Huddersfield, where he is also the Director of HuCPeR (Huddersfield Centre for Performance Research). David’s activities centre around performance, on modern and period instruments, and he is dedicated to promoting a passionate and charismatic aesthetic of performance, questioning current conventions and seeking to communicate historical music to a growing audience.
I am totally out of my depth and lack the language in describing what he does so do please watch and listen to his phenomenal work here.
