David’s musical focus is as a soloist and accompanist. Over the past twenty years he has enjoyed collaborations with many other solo artists, including singers Paul Agnew, James Bowman, Michael Chance, Charles Daniels, Grace Davidson, Emma Kirkby, Elin Manahan Thomas and Stephen Varcoe, harpist Frances Kelly, violinists Bojan Čičić, Rachel Podger and Elizabeth Wallfisch, fellow lutenist Jacob Heringman, and Arab singer and oud player Abdul Salam Kheir.
Among numerous recordings are several CDs of English songs and lute music, including Dowland discs with both James Bowman and Charles Daniels, as well as the complete works of John Danyel with Nigel Short. He has recorded consort music by Dowland with Concordia and The King’s Singers, and lute works by Francesco da Milano on Concordia’s Titian disc. As a member of I Fagiolini he included solo lute works by Holborne and Byrd on their Triumphs of Orianna disc. David’s award-winning disc with Elin Manahan Thomas—Ravish’d with Sacred Extasies—features devotional songs by Dowland, Campian, Humfrey and Purcell, as well as rarely heard lute and theorbo music by John Lawrence and John Wilson.
His latest solo album, The Famous Weiss, features music by the great Baroque lute virtuoso Silvius Leopold Weiss. It received enthusiastic reviews, including: 'an exceptionally engaging recording … what wonderful expressiveness and musical intelligence David Miller brings to this music' (Lute News).
David has performed at Dartington since the mid-1990s, and he continues to inspire the younger generation of lutenists in his teaching role as professor of lute at the Guildhall School.
