The final concert on board was, again, very well attended and received. Robin had done an in-house t.v. interview prior to the show which he had enjoyed and had obviously had the desired effect.
He finds the time after the last concert, and before arriving at his destination, the hardest part. He feels he's done the job and wants to get home. However that's hard mid-Atlantic!
He did manage to find a few guests to play tennis and table tennis, so it wasn't all bad.
Whilst away on this trip our youngest son turned 4 years old. Robin finds it difficult to be away at the best of times, but to miss a birthday was very difficult.
A friend called in with a present on the day and had the brainwave to photograph both boys holding up a message and e mail it to him.
This we did and Robin was delighted!
Thank goodness for modern technology.
'As always, it was sheer pleasure to observe Robin Hill's remarkable fluent technique: everything looks easy when he plays it.' Colin Cooper- Classical Guitar Magazine ----- 'Wonderful for their (Hill & Wiltschinsky) precision, touch and clarity of sound... refined virtuosity, the achievement of a long interpretive process.' Il Giornale D'Italia (Rome) ----- 'I loved your CD and thought your technique and performance were fabulous...' Rick Wakeman
