Notes & Reviews:

Classical Music, January 2015
Tritschler's subtlety and responsiveness have never been so keenly captured on disc.

International Record Review, January 2015
Tritschler, a young Irish tenor of considerable achievement and perhaps more promise, delivers them [the Hölderlin fragments] with conviction, his clear, accurate singing making the most of their variety and the anguish evident in both words and music.

Tenor Robin Tritschler and pianist Iain Burnside come together once again for this release of Britten and Schubert, recorded live in concert at Wigmore Hall in January 2014. Robin Tritschler has received numerous awards throughout his career, particularly for the performance of Art Song, and this powerful and, at times hauntingly profound, recital stands as a testament to his great artistry.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2015
Tritschler's delivery is never overworked, his enunciation clear but always natural, unforced. It's an approach that gives his Schubert Lieder an attractive folk-simplicity while in Britten's folksong arrangements it ensures that things don't get too precious or affected...Tritschler is a serious new fixture of art-song.

American Record Guide, November/December 2015
These Wigmore Hall recordings are wonderful. As I know from having been there for recitals over the years, it is one of the world's finest sites acoustically. This recital of January 11, 2014 begins with Britten's Sechs Hlderlin-Fragmente, continues with six Schubert songs, and concludes with five of Britten's folk song arrangements plus a Schubert encore... Thank you, Wigmore Hall. Let these recordings keep coming!
