Friday, so it must be Cochin, India. The good news is that it's also the day that Robin will start his journey home. Not that he gets here until Saturday evening, but at least he's on his way.
The last guitar concert on Crystal Symphony was yesterday, and the message that I got from Robin was that it had been fine. From many years experience, I know that this actually means that it went very well, and he had been pleased with the outcome.
He's always very critical of his own performances, so fine, means excellent.
I was very pleased to read Richard Alleyne's article today, 'Teens tune in to Classic FM'. Apparently, their initial interest in classical music stems from film scores, such as Star Wars, but they are now tuning in to help with their homework. For more details follow the link.
I have also discovered that 'On classical music', over in Finland are enjoying following Robin's life, so hello to everyone there!
'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
