[...] 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.
In the 2015-16 season, Twyla Robinson will perform Rachmaninoff’s The Bells with the Cincinnati Symphony and Ein deutsches Requiem of Brahms with the Winston-Salem Symphony. Last season, Ms. Robinson’s concert engagements included Ralph Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Messiah with the Jacksonville Symphony, and a concert of Strauss lieder with the Indianapolis Symphony. On the operatic stage, she performed the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro with New Orleans Opera, and created the role of Becky in the world premiere of Ricky Ian Gordon’s Morning Star with Cincinnati Opera.
Ms. Robinson began the 2013-14 season with Verdi’s Requiem, first in a return to the Indianapolis Symphony, and subsequently with the Seattle Symphony. Ms. Robinson also made her debut singing Dvorak’s Te Deum with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and Jaap van Zweeden. During the 2012-13 season, performances included Mendelssohn’s Lobegesang in her debut with the Utah Symphony Orchestra, a debut singing Messiaen’s Poèmes pour Mi with the Indianapolis Symphony, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with Cincinnati Symphony, and Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem with the Alabama Symphony.
