'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

Dowland to Rodrigo - Guitar on the QE2

The QE2 has left Quebec and is now cruising the Gulf of St.Lawrence.
Today Robin is performing the third, and final, concert of the trip.
I thought you may like to see what he is playing, so, here is the programme:

Two Dances - John Dowland
(Melancholy Galliard - Allemande)

Two Pieces for Viheula
Guardame Las Vacas - Luis de Narvaez
Fantasia - Alonso Mudarra

Homage a Tarrega - Joaquin Turina
(Garrotin - Soleares)

Una Limosna Por el Amor de Dios - Agustin Barrios

Alegrias - Celedonio Romero

Cavatina - Stanley Myers

Two Pieces - Robin Hill
(Canzone - Fiesta)

Adagio (extract from Concierto de Aranjuez) - Joaquin Rodrigo

Alegrias - Traditional (Arr.Hill)

Robin Hill - guitar

This programme lasts for 45 minutes, but every one of those minutes, are pretty eventful!
I look forward to hearing how it went and reporting back with more news tomorrow.
