It's not always glamorous at the top, travelling to far flung places and staying in luxurious surroundings. Tonight Robin set off in torrential rain to play at a corporate event in Manchester. The satellite navigation decided not to work and the traffic was so bad it took him 20 minutes to get less than a mile from home. After a few frantic 'phone calls all went quiet until a relieved Robin called to say he'd made it in time and was about to go on.
He's not home yet, but I spoke to him in the interval and it was going well. At least he'll be home tonight...hopefully.
'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
