We had an interesting 'phone call today from Hyperion records.
Back in 1984 Hill/Wiltschinsky Guitar Duo recorded 'Virtuoso Music for Two Guitars' at Pluto Studios in Manchester.
This was their first recording which launched their careers.
Today Hyperion contacted us as one piece from this album had been used in an episode of 'Lovejoy' on BBC1.
For those not familiar with this t.v. programme, it is a series starring Ian McShane, about the shady dealings of an antique expert called 'Lovejoy', based on the novels by former doctor, Jonathan Gash.
As far as I know at this stage the piece they used was Carulli - Nocturne de Salon Op.227.
That's good news.
'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
