Notes & Reviews:

Ailish Tynan has made a specialty of French song. The melodies of Gabriel Faure lie at the heart of his romantic but elusive style, and this selection ranges from the composer's youthful embrace of Italian style to late and quietly innovative settings of Verlaine in which simplicity and profundity of expression go hand in hand. Presenting the major singers of today and the stars of tomorrow, the Rosenblatt Recitals are London's only world-class season of opera recitals. 'People often say that the golden age of singing is dead. The Rosenblatt Recital Series is devoted to proving that bel canto - literally 'beautiful singing' in its broadest sense - is very much alive!' -Ian Rosenblatt

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Irish soprano Ailish Tynan's full and supple voice adds new color and dimension to the songs. Iain Burnside's playing is warm and sophisticated; 'Spleen' in particular is delicate, clear, and heartfelt. Tynan's skill as a storyteller is evident in the cycle 'Le Jardin Clos'. 'Quand Tu Plonges Tes Yeux Dans Mes Yeux' is excited and intimate. Tynan's simple, direct, and honest approach to it is heartbreakingly beautiful.

Gramophone Magazine, January 2014
Often her first priority with making expressive points is tone. It's hard to blame her because she has so much of it that one could almost mistake her for a mezzo-soprano...When FaurT pares the music down to the core...Tynan acquires admirable interpretative selflessness.

Opera Now
Tynan has a strong lyric soprano, not overly-distinctive, but capable of caressing a line while also providing some bite. Her phrasing is sound and she keeps the line buoyant and resists the temptation to let the music sag...Burnside abets her in her achievements.
