[...] the orchestra played an electrifying "Lyric Symphony" by Zemlinsky under its music director Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Just like the orchestra, soprano Twyla Robinson and baritone Roman Trekel were adept at alternating between chamber music-like intimacy and emotional waves in their singing. This was the Rotterdam Philharmonic at its best. Anthony Fiumara, Trouw, 7.9.2009
Selections such as ”Down East” immediately showed off the sensuous, creamy sound of her voice. With perfect intonation and attention to phrasing, she is at home in this repertoire, relaxed, with charming expressions and gestures. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - Review of Spivey Hall recital, July 28, 2007
Soprano Twyla Robinson is a major catch. With perfect diction, crisply articulated consonants and a warm, wide vibrato, she purred and comforted - finding the child in the mother, and vice versa, for the line "As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you." Bliss. Pierre Ruhe, The Atlanta Constitution-Journal - Brahms Requiem with Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
Twyla Robinson’s incisive musicianship, ravishing vocal beauty, and dramatic delivery have taken her to the leading concert halls and opera stages of Europe and North America. She has been heard in performance with the London Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Berlin Staatskapelle, The Cleveland Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, and Los Angeles Philharmonic, among others. She has worked with conductors including Christoph Eschenbach, Alan Gilbert, Bernard Haitink, Pierre Boulez, Franz Welser-Möst, Donald Runnicles, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Esa-Pekka Salonen, Hans Graf and Michael . . . Tilson Thomas.
Ms. Robinson begins this season with her return to the Indianapolis Symphony singing the Verdi Requiem, a work she will reprise later in the season with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra. She will also make her debut singing Dvorak’s Te Deum with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Jaap van Zweeden. Ms. Robinson opened the 2012-2013 season with her first performances of Mendelssohn’s Lobegesang in her debut with the Utah Symphony Orchestra. During the season she returned to the Indianapolis Symphony adding Messiaen’s Poèmes pour Mi to her repertoire. Further concert performances for Ms. Robinson included Beethoven Symphony No. 9 with Cincinnati Symphony and Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem with Alabama Symphony. On the opera stage, Ms. Robinson sang the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro with the Orlando Philharmonic and returned to Cincinnati Opera as the Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier.
