As I said yesterday normal practice has now been resumed here as Robin prepares for a couple of solo concerts that are coming up. The first is next week in Dewsbury Town Hall, a lunchtime recital.
For me, it's great to be hearing fantastic music drifting around the house as I go about my business. It's a lovely programme, Malaguena (Trad. Arr.Hill), Six Lute Pieces, Three Pieces by Tarrega, Variations on a Theme by Mozart (Sor), El Noi de la Mare (Trad. Arr.Llobet), Three Pieces by Dilermando Reis, La Paloma (Sebastian Iradier), Two Pieces by Brouwer and Asturias (Albeniz).
As it's a lunchtime performance it's only an hour long and a lot of thought goes into trying to make that an exciting and eventful hour, which I think has been achieved.
So if you are anywhere near Dewsbury on the 10th January then go along and check it out. If not, then feel free to get in touch and we'll see if we can organise anything in your area/country.
I remember that some years ago while on a Hill/Wiltschinsky tour in Borneo, many of the audience had flown in specially for the concert from some of the outlying islands. Praise indeed.
'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
