'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

Time, Travel and Twitter.

Recently we have been looking at the various tracks on 'Arrival', and neglecting the day to day life of this particular musician.
Well, as always, there has been plenty going on.
Robin has been practicing for many hours, every day, as you would expect.
But, if you've been following the 'tweets' you will know he has also been preparing new pieces, composing, thinking of new CDs etc.
All of these activities are an essential part of the process when an active musician.
Also, you'll be pleased to hear, that Robin has been enjoying life at home.
Just having time with the family brings a great deal of pleasure.

But he's more than ready to perform for an audience once again, which is a good thing, as today he has two separate private functions, one in Yorkshire and the other in Cheshire.
Logistically it is possible.
Whether he'll be home between the two I'll have to wait and see.
Robin is also playing tomorrow evening, and then flying off on Sunday morning.
Which leaves me with the challenge of preparing all his concert clothes for packing whilst he's still wearing them...

I am constantly looking for new and interesting ideas to add to the blog and make your read more enjoyable.
Twitter, which I added not too long ago, and have already mentioned, is an ideal way of updating with little snippets of information.
But it seems it can also help in more serious situations, read this CNN report, 'Student 'Twitters' his way out of Egyptian Jail'.
