Robin has arrived in Bermuda, which means, all being well, he will catch his flight tonight, and be home tomorrow.
This is a huge relief.
If the weather hadn't improved, it would have been another five or six days before he got back.
Apart from wanting to see each other, there were more practical issues at stake here.
He's only home for a week, so the loss of any of those days would have been difficult.
I've already had messages from people that will be seeing him in concert, in the next few weeks, asking if he'll be playing the Mozart Variations. They've seen him perform these before, amongst other things, and obviously enjoyed it.
My concern was if he'd make it there with any clean concert clothes!
Also, I have a lot to discuss with him.
There have been a number of 'technological' changes whilst he's been away.
Twitter I have told you about, but, there are many other ideas floating around my mind at the moment.
First I need the musician, here, to try and implement them!
Whilst in Bermuda Robin has been able to collect his emails. One strange, but interesting one, informed him that he is the subject of a pub trivia question!
The question is: 'What group did Robin Hill play in in the 60's?'
Well, I'm not going to tell you, you'll have to go and look it up yourself. Mind you, it could have been one of a few....
'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
