One of today’s most exciting young tenors, Irish-born Robin Tritschler has garnered an impressive discography encompassing Dowland, Schubert, Britten and songs by composers of the First World War. A graduate of Dublin’s Royal Irish Academy of Music and the Royal Academy of Music in London, he studied under Ian Partridge before winning the songs prizes at the 2nd China International Singing Competition and, in 2006, at the Kathleen Ferrier Awards. He was a BBC New Generation Artist until 2014.
His operatic and recital experience is vast. Throughout Europe he has performed over 90 Bach cantatas, the role of Evangelist in Bach’s St Matthew and St John Passions, and the tenor part in Bach’s B minor Mass and Christmas Oratorio. Operatic roles include Rodrigo in Verdi’s Otello, Count Almaviva in Rossini’s Il Barbiere di Siviglia and Narraboth in Richard Strauss’ Salome.
But it is in song recitals when he feels at his most expressive, both in performing and programming. He regularly appears at Wigmore Hall as well as throughout Europe and the Far East, notably with pianists Graham Johnson, Malcolm Martineau, Iain Burnside and Jonathan Ware. Away from the operatic stage and concert platform.
