'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

Highlands and Islands

I'm currently working on a tour of the Highlands and Islands next year. Hill/Wiltschinsky have played many times throughout Scotland and I thought it was time to return.
The guitar, whether solo or duo, is ideal for this type of trip as they really don't need much other than a room to play in and a couple of chairs, (without arms otherwise you get an awful crunching sound as guitar bangs against chair, or the duo perch precariously on the edge of their seats which makes everyone nervous). They can therefore take live music to some of the small venues on distant Islands. The last time they were there Robin returned and composed a piece called 'Return to Islay' which is on the solo CD 'Virtuoso', so maybe that would be a good starting point!
