Notes & Reviews:

A song recital commemorating WWI brings to mind works by the poets and composers who fought valiantly for their country. But the affliction of the War was not restricted to the battlefields. There were those interned, those who stayed to defend their home, and those forced from their homes by advancing armies. This recital draws its inspiration from those lives upended by the Great War, friend or foe, soldier or civilian. Alongside established works, this recital program introduces some little known songs to more fully portray the humanity of those caught up in maelstrom.

The Times, 7th November 2014
Armed with the sensitive Malcolm Martineau as his accompanist, [Tritschler] throws himself into his thoughtful recital...with winning sincerity and dedication...Tritschler's voice has an unusual kink: depending on his register or volume he can seem like two different singers, one with a shiny edge to his tone, the other roundly mellow. It's initially disconcerting, but he's worth attention in either mode.

Sunday Times, 9th November 2014
The gifted tenor Robin Tristchler's singing is nuanced sensitively, while the pianist Malcolm Martineau is, as always, an astute partner.

Financial Times, 7th November 2014
Tritschler is communicative in the English-language songs and his imaginative reach extends to largely forgotten composers.

The Telegraph, 1st December 2014
There are many gems, both moving and lyrical. The Irish tenor Robin Tritschler proves yet again that he is one of the most sensitive and musical of today's younger lieder interpreters, his plangent timbre matched to a fine sense of word and mood. Malcolm Martineau is, as ever, his superb accompanist.

MusicWeb International, 26th December 2014
This year that begins our centenary commemorations of the First World War has seen a few worthwhile musical contributions to that story, but this is probably the best that has come my way... the performances... are moving and poignant throughout. Tritschler is an extremely humane guide through this often tragic scene... It is of interest far beyond the historical.

BBC Music Magazine, January 2015
Tritschler proves an expert guide to all this material. His linguistic and vocal skills combine to splendid effect...Tritschler's technical and expressive skills combine throughout to bring out the best in the words as well as the music.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Much as I appreciate Tritschler's voice and his evident hard work in researching and preparing this program, it would add interest to hear contrasting voices; there starts to be a certain sameness of approach to many of the songs. This release is a treasure and its message is terribly relevant - and needed - in our time. Fine notes by Tritschler about each poet and composer. Texts and translations.
