Whilst we are coping with typical November weather in the UK, cold, wet and windy, Robin is basking in sunshine, dining al fresco, and using up the suntan lotion I packed for him.
However, he has another concert tomorrow, so will be in high practice mode today. Apart from the occasional promenade around the deck he will shut away in his cabin practicing.
Crystal Serenity docks in Bermuda in the morning but I know from years of travelling with him that he won't venture ashore until after his concert. That requires a lot of will power as I'm sure it's a beautiful place.
The thoughts of a packed theatre will help focus his mind on his performance and as it's docked there for two days he'll have plenty of time to go ashore and buy gifts for his family!
'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
