Plans are well on the way for the looming trip abroad, although I must confess it feels more like a state of chaos.
Robin is in high practice mode, preparing for the concerts he will be giving whilst away. He has also been purchasing numerous sets of strings, and downloading music, podcasts and the unabridged version of 'Hard Times' read by Martin Jarvis. That should all keep him busy.
Actually, I would imagine that it will be quite reassuring to sit in his room, miles from home, and be able to watch 'Newsnight'.
I, on the other hand, am dealing with more practical issues like printing out travel itinerary, gathering passport etc. and generally packing.
So please forgive me if I'm somewhat brief this evening.
'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
