About the album

For a period of the 20th Century, due to his talent and association with Benjamin Britten, Peter Pears was perhaps the world’s most famous classical singer. Pears inspired Britten to create great works of art precisely because Pears was a compelling artist with an exceptional voice, an inquisitive mind, a knowledge of art, history, literature and poetry. They became a self-perpetuating duo, inspiring each other to even greater heights of artistry, technical ability, and emotional certainty. This album of works by Lennox Berkeley, Benjamin Britten, Arthur Oldham, Richard Rodney Bennett and Geoffrey Bush is performed by tenor Robin Tritschler, who is joined by cellist Philip Higham, guitarist Sean Shibe and pianist Malcolm Martineau.

Praise for Robin Tritschler and Malcolm Martineau: ★★★★ Performance, ★★★★ Recording
“Robin Tritschler’s sweet-toned voice is a continual delight, as is Malcolm Martineau’s sparkling, pearly, luminous piano sound” - BBC Music Magazine
