Here we are at the start of another year with the prospect of many exciting things happening over the next twelve months.
Today started with an announcement from Robin that he was going to file all his music. Whilst this may not sound exciting to you, it is certainly jaw dropping to me!
In all our time together I have become used to sharing our home with a huge amount of manuscript paper, scores, studies etc, and a regular cry of, 'have you seen...', to which I always answer, 'no', otherwise you could be lost for days under mounds of music, searching.
The filing cabinets are already there in one of the two studio rooms, and they even have some music in, but not in any organised sort of way.
So, after making this announcement, Robin disappeared this morning and hasn't been seen since.
Son number one said he is up there, and not only is Robin filing alphabetically, but he's logging all pieces on computer too! He couldn't actually see what he has done as he was unable to find a pathway across the room, but I'm very impressed.
This may be a long process though as it's now evening and Robin still hasn't finished the 'A's'...
'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
