Robin has recorded a new podcast in which he talks about Claude Bolling's 'Concerto for Classic Guitar and Jazz Piano Trio'.
This fantastic concerto is in seven highly contrasting movements and Robin discusses each of them in turn with musical examples from the Robin Hill Quartet.
This is a virtuoso work which places great demands on the two soloists, guitar and piano which are expertly complimented by the double bass and drums.
The musicians are: Robin Hill - Guitar
Stephen Wood - Piano
Dave Lynane - Double-bass
Maurice Cheetham - Drums
Robin gave this work its UK Premiere, so it has always been a very important piece for him.
You can hear it here.
'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
