Robin took great delight in making a new friend. A 2 and a half foot Iguana that happened to be passing by.

He did spend some time on land, but as always, his thoughts are never far away from the next concert.
Consequently he usually returns to his room to practice after a quick look around.
Still, it's very nice to be able to take a break in such beautiful surroundings.
'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
