This morning Peter Wiltschinsky came over for a rehearsal as the duo have a concert in Tenby, Pembrokeshire, tomorrow. As I mentioned the other day, I enjoy it when he is here as they play through the whole concert. Unfortunately I was out all morning and only got back in time to hear the last few pieces, from the wrong side of the music room door. That sounded great though and I'm sure the residents of Tenby will have a wonderful evening!
They also ran through a few Christmas carols that they arranged some time ago to decide on a couple to play at a forthcoming event at Rufford Old Hall. Now Robin knows which ones to practice whilst on his next foreign trip which is looming on the horizon.
Peter stayed for lunch which was nice and gave me the chance to issue him with various details for their trip in the morning.
Robin then had to head off to Manchester to get 10 sets of strings to see him through the next few weeks...
'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
