David Milsom's work strikes a pragmatic balance between scholarly insight and musical intuition.

Head of Performance at Huddersfield University, he leads the Huddersfield Centre for Performance Research (HuCPeR), bringing his scholarship to fruition as a soloist, ensemble player and recording artist.

He is widely published on the subject of performance practice, and presents regularly at conferences in and outside of the UK.

Having initially specialised in nineteenth-century string playing practices, David has since broadened his investigations to encompass the changing performance styles of the twentieth century.
