Robin Tyson (Counter-tenor)

Born: England

The English counter-tenor, Robin Tyson, was a choral scholar at King's College Cambridge before joining the Royal College of Music for post-graduate study.

Robin Tyson is becoming one of his generation's busiest counter-tenors, with recent concerts throughout Europe, in Japan and the USA, with conductors such as Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Paul McCreesh, Robert King, Joshua Rifkin and James Judd. He has sung Leonard Bernstein's Chichester Psalms in the 2000 BBC Proms with the BBC Singers, concerts of songs with the viol consort Fretwork, and J.S. Bach for the Gabrieli Consort in Portugal and Lichtenstein. Forthcoming concerts include Georg Frideric Handel's Messiah with Richard Hickox in the Barbican, concerts with the Netherlands Bach Society, singing Medoro in G.F. Handel's Orlando in Spain and France with Paul McCreesh, and a collaboration with Michael Chance in the Concertgebouw and other venues in the Netherlands. A disc of Bach Cantatas in Sir John Eliot Gardiner's yearlong project for DG has just been released. A keen exponent of contemporary music he appeared in the 1996 BBC Proms singing Gysrgy Kurtig, and in the 1999 Proms with the world premiere of Giles Swayne's Havoc.

In opera Robin Tyson has worked with René Jacobs in Cavalli's La Calisto at La Monnaie, Brussels, at the Festspielhaus, Salzburg, and in Barcelona, Lyon and Montpellier. He has worked for Flanders Opera in a double bill of Venus & Adonis and Dido & Aeneas in Antwerp and Ghent. He will soon sing in the premiere of the Czech composer Vladimir Franz's Ludus Danielis in the Czech Republic.
