When a concert is billed: 'Fasten Your Seat Belts - Robin Hill, Classical Guitar', the audience must have wondered what they were in for. I can only imagine that Kirklees Council had remembered a Hill/Wiltschinsky concert there a few years ago.
But fasten them they did and an excellent lunchtime concert was had by all.
The organisers were delighted with attendance and the audience were delighted with the music.
Lunchtime concerts are not always easy for a performer but Robin took it in his stride and delivered a fantastic performance.
One of the representatives of the venue said she had never seen an audience so captivated and excited and had already been asked by many of the public to make sure Robin returns soon.
One lady said that she didn't really like the guitar, but came along as she had a season ticket, she was delighted she had, and said it was 'a superb concert and she had enjoyed it tremendously'.
What can I add to that?
'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
