Acclaimed for his “radiantly lyrical” voice, Irish tenor Robin Tritschler has garnered praise from critics and audiences for his performances. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Music and was a BBC New Generation Artist.
This season Robin will make his debut with the Wiener Symphoniker as the Evangelist in Bach’s St Matthew Passion and will continue with that repertoire on a European tour with Damien Guillon and Le Banquet Céleste. Robin will also join Raphaël Pichon and the Munich Philharmonic for concerts of Mozart’s Mass in C minor and join the London Symphony Orchestra for Bruckner’s Te Deum conducted by Nathalie Stutzmann. He will also make a return to the Oxford International Song Festival for two recitals: Die schöne Müllerin with Graham Johnson and a curated programme that features William Blake as both poet and artist with pianist Christopher Glynn.
2022/23 saw Robin join Nathalie Stutzmann and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for their season opening with performances of Beethoven’s Symphony No.9. He returned later as the Evangelist in performances of Bach’s St Matthew Passion. Robin also joined the Ulster Orchestra for Haydn’s The Creation (Daniele Rustioni), the Orchestra della Toscana for Britten’s Serenade (Michele Spotti), the Finnish Baroque Orchestra for Bach’s St John Passion and Ensemble Pygmalion for Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang. Robin also sang Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with the Oslo Domkor and later with the Dresdner Kreuzchor. For Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Robin stood in at short notice and sang Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni).
Recent seasons have seen Robin in concert with Le Concert Spirituel and Hervé Niquet for performances of Mozart’s Requiem recorded for release on Alpha Classics, Ensemble Pygmalion for Mozart’s Mass in C minor at the Salzburg Festival, Britten’s War Requiem in Katowice with Charles Dutoit, and Mass in C minor with the Bayerische Rundfunk (Blomstedt). Robin sang the Evangelist in Theater Basel’s new production of St Matthew Passion, a coproduction with Deutsche Oper Berlin, staged by Benedikt von Peter, and returned to the Royal Opera House as Jaquino (Fidelio), conducted by Antonio Pappano. Further highlights have seen the opening recital of Wigmore Hall’s 2017/18 season, Schwanengesang in San Diego with Inon Barnatan, St John Passion in Dresden and Salzburg with Herreweghe; appearances with Pygmalion (Raphael Pichon), NDR Hannover, London Philharmonic and Royal Concertgebouw orchestras; a return to the Risør Chamber Music Festival; and his debut for the Bregenz Festival in a newly-commissioned opera by Thomas Larcher, The Hunting Gun.
