'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

Anagrams and Album Titles....

So, Sir Paul McCartney has done another 'secret' concert in New York.
This time in the 700 capacity Highline Ballroom.
It must be quite refreshing for him to perform in such a relatively intimate venue. Anything after the first 3 or 4 thousand tends to just turn into a distant blur of swaying humanity.
The show was dedicated to John, George, and his late wife, Linda, and the more aware Beatles fans have already discovered that the title of the new album, 'Memory Almost Full', is an anagram of, 'For My Soulmate LLM'. (Linda Louise McCartney)

That's either an incredible coincidence, or, a fantastic piece of marketing, that would have had the McCartney camp delighted, I'm sure. It certainly captures the zeitgeist of the 21st century.

Either way, it got me thinking.
As you know, Robin will be recording a new CD shortly.
We will be needing a title.
R O B I N H I L L - not an easy one to apply the anagram technique.
We could try adding the names of our children, but they have plenty of unusual letters. What can you do with F,V,O,X and a few more.....

Or, maybe Robin has some cryptic message he wants you all to try and untangle, you'll just have to wait and see.

Mind you, it has been a while since the duo have released any new material.
Now, Hill/Wiltschinsky Guitar Duo - there has to be something in that lot.
I'll get the Scrabble out and start practicing....
