There was rather an unexpected twist to the Hill/Wiltschinsky concert last night. At 7.35pm it was decided that Peter Wiltschinsky wasn't well enough to perform. This left Robin 25 minutes to change his mind set to a solo concert and decide what he was going to play..
Ever the professional, he went out and gave an excellent performance, with all credit too him as that would have taken some courage.
Between pieces he was tuning the guitar and paused to inform the audience that it didn't actually require tuning but he was just thinking about what to play next.
They were very amused and also very appreciative that the show had gone on.
'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
