BBC Radio 3’s Music Stars of the Future

BBC Press release - 26th September 2012
 
After hours of listening to performances from new artists from around the globe BBC Radio 3 today announces a list of the musicians it believes will be classical and jazz music stars of the future. The BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Scheme helps to support talented musicians to reach the next stages of their careers and brings some of the world’s most promising new talent to listeners across the UK through BBC Radio 3 broadcasts. From today, six international stars, on the turn of making their international debut are named New Generation Artists 2012.
 
The New Generation Artists 2012 are: tenor Robin Tritschler (Eire), classical Guitarist Sean Shibe (Scotland) who is the first classical guitarist to ever join the scheme, jazz saxophonist Trish Clowes (UK), cellist Leonard Elschenbroich (Germany), clarinettist Mark Simpson (UK), The Apollon Musagate Quartet (Poland) and violinist Elena Urioste (USA).  The New Generation Artists come from a wide field, and provide a representative cross-section of the most exciting British and international young artists.  
 
The scheme is in its 14th year and gives young musicians a wide range of opportunities over two years to develop their live and recorded performances for broadcast.  They will have the opportunity to go into the studio for solo chamber music recordings, make regular concerto studio recordings and live broadcasts with BBC orchestras, give lunchtime concerts from around the UK including Wigmore Hall, and are encouraged to be involved with chamber music collaborations with other New Generation Artists.  
 
Adam Gatehouse, Radio 3 Editor for New Generation Artists said, “It’s so wonderful to see so many talented young international musicians again this year. BBC Radio 3 is the home of classical music and is committed to jazz, the station is proud to spotlight and nurture the stars of the future whilst offering listeners an opportunity to hear world-class international artists on the radio from the comfort of their own homes.” 
 
BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3 fronted by BBC Young Musician of the Year presenter Clemency Burton-Hill, who commented "I'm thrilled and delighted to be presenting a new season of programmes highlighting the dazzling talents of the BBC New Generation Artists. At a time when support for young musicians is increasingly challenging, the ambitious scheme provides a vital and exciting opportunity to nurture and develop some of the most brilliant international stars of tomorrow - on the concert platform, in the recording studio, and by encouraging meaningful musical partnerships with other emerging artists. It's a great honour and privilege for me to meet and work with these inspiring and wonderful musicians and I can't wait to hear what they have in store for us over the next two years!"
 
Last year’s cohort of New Generation Artists, who remain on the scheme for another year are: pianist Christian Ihle Hadland from Norway, violinist Veronika Eberle from Germany, Spanish mezzo-soprano Clara Mouriz, Russian pianist Igor Levit, British mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston, British soprano Ruby Hughes and the Signum Quartet from Germany. The New Generation Artists for 2012 will join the artists from 2011 on the scheme and listeners will be able to hear the New Generation Artists on-air from the 8th October with Jennifer Johnston live from the Wigmore Hall, the 2012 entrants will be broadcast from 24th December.

CPE Bach

St John Passion

Cadogan Hall

...what made the evening unforgettable was the presence of tenor Robin Tritschler in the narrative role of the Evangelist. His German diction was as natural as everyday conversation, but the soaring sweetness of his sound conferred an exalted nobility on every detail of this time-worn tale. Michael Church, The Independent

Bach

St Matthew Passion

Orquesta Filarmónica de Málaga

El tenor Robin Tritscher fue el ejemplo definitorio de estas dos ideas, su papel como evangelista fue incontestable; posee un instrumento vocal nacido para este oratorio, lleno de matices que coronó con las distintas arias reservadas por Bach.  La Opinion de Malaga
Mención aparte merecen las voces solistas de Marcos Fink (bajo barítono), en el papel de Jesús, y, especialmente, Robin Tritschler (tenor), en el del Evangelista, quien, con una técnica y una musicalidad inusitadas, consiguió que los recitativos no se vieran reducidos a mero ensamblaje de corales y arias, sino que elevaran su condición a material lírico de primer orden.

Robin Tritschler makes a devilishly good impression as the Half-Wit.

Barbican Theatre

Perhaps most darkly dazzling was the neglected Hölderlin cycle, sung with precision by tenor Robin Tritschler, with velvet-toned pianist Christopher Glynn. Helen Wallace/Classical-music.com
In this performance one felt these things being transformed into pure aural magic, a quality heightened by the angelic quality of Robin Tritschler’s tenor in the Hölderlin Fragments... Ivan Hewett/The Telegraph
Very different the performance of Les Illuminations, tremendous music tremendously played, and tremendously sung by Robin Tritschler. Clement Crisp/Financial Times
...the joyful, youthful revival of Les Illuminations, sung by tenor Robin Tritschler. Lindsey Winship/Evening Standard
The tenor, Robin Tritschler, was gorgeous – with a sweetness and restraint that seemed utterly congruent to the music and made Britten’s setting shine.

Lammermuir Festival 2013

Holy Trinity Church Haddington

...it soon seemed clear that there can be no greater test of a singer’s diction than to alternate items with a fine-voiced actor such as Alex Jennings. Despite music’s additional demands on pitch, breathing, phrasing, balance with piano etc., I could make out every syllable...Vocal range was impressive, whether ethereal head voice or sonorous lower notes...Tritschler alternated effectively between peaceful colours and more menacing, edgy ones which seem to inform the text and music of truly gripping nocturnes.

Alan Coady/Bachtrack.com

Warlock

The Curlew

BBC Proms, Cadogan Hall

...the first-ever Proms performance of his [Peter Warlcock] song-cycle The Curlew was a significant event, and was made even more so through its superb rendering by tenor Robin Tritschler and the Conchord Ensemble.

Michael Church, The Independent

Song of Hiawatha

Three Choirs Festival, Gloucester Cathedral

Of the three soloists tenor Robin Tritschler was easily the most accomplished; a strong voice, secure from top to bottom and perfectly clear in tone and diction, he sensitively applied colouring suitable to the mood of music and words, and offered a glorious performance in his extended solo “Onaway! Awake, beloved!” Bachtrack
