Today has been made up of highs and lows.
The high was some advance being made with the new recording equipment. This is great news as it has been very frustrating up to now. We are one step nearer to being ready to record the new CD, but don't hold your breath, as it could be a little time before anything is ready for release.
I think we have a good idea what is going to be on it, but you will just have to wait and see..
The low, was spending a huge amount of time with endless paperwork for a visa we need, as Robin has some concerts coming up that require one, well, two actually but the other one can wait for another day.
It's frustrating as he isn't actually playing in either of these countries, just passing through.
Thank goodness I only have to worry about one musician. It must be a nightmare trying to take an orchestra abroad and I'm sure there are times when concerts don't come off for just that reason.
'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
