Alexander Robin Baker

Edoardo 111: L’Assiedo di Calais / GSMD

“…majestically sung by Baker…”

Music OMH


“…Alexander Robin Baker revealed a warm, nutty baritone as the strutting English king: certainly plenty of bel canto promise there.”



Messiah / Bath Choral Society

“…Alexander Robin Baker gave us a supple, unforced The trumpet shall sound…”



Harper: Symphony No. 2 / Scottish Chamber Orchestra

“From its aching Mahlerian introduction through to its close, the symphony is an emotional journey, with a beating heart of profound compassion and conciliation, sung by the SCO and the magnificent baritone Alexander Robin Baker, a late replacement soloist who penetrated the soul of the music. I don’t know what little time he had to learn it, but he did it well”.

The Herald


“At its heart is Them! Not Us!, set to a powerful poem by Ron Butlin which explores the tragic deaths of children, particularly those caught up in war. The honeyed tones of baritone Alexander Robin Baker, stepping in for an indisposed Leigh Melrose, made the words all the more chilling.”

The Scotsman


“The rich-toned baritone Alexander Robin Baker…”

The Times


Chichibio: The Goose of Cairo / London Mozart Players

“Special accolades, however, should go to Quirijn de Lang who provided a perfectly pitched portrayal of the mysterious Don Pippo, Robert Murray who tackled his vocal lines with verve as Biondello, and Alexander Robin Baker who was a class act as Chichibio.”

Music OMH


“…the combined vocal energy and charisma of Ellie Laugharne (Auretta) and Alexander Robin Baker (Chichibio) conspired to eclipse the lovers…”



Papegeno: The Magic Flute / Nevill Holt Opera

“The production was fortunate in fielding a strongly played, funny Papageno in Alexander Robin Baker, whose attractive voice and natural comic timing had the audience eating out of his hand and his robust way of charming the birds out of the trees.”

Classical Source


“Alexander Robin Baker proved a garrulous Papageno with a nice nutty baritone for his Volks-liked like numbers.”



Schaunard: La bohème / Nevill Holt Opera

“(Nicholas Chalmer’s) an astute voice-spotter, too: Alexander Robin Baker (Schaunard), Ross McInroy (Colline) and Martin Lamb (Benoît and Alcindoro) offered sterling support…

The Sunday Times


“With Alexander Robin Baker and Ross McInroy offering strong characterisations of Schaunard and Colline, this Bohème does the business.”

The Telegraph


Norton: La cambiale di matrimonio / GSMD

“The servants Norton and Clarina were strongly drawn by Alexander Robin Baker and Raquel Luis.”



Kathleen Ferrier Competition 2008

“Second prize went to baritone Alexander Robin Baker who perhaps came closest to producing the “wow” factor that spellbinds an audience.”

Musical Pointers


“His was by far the most sensitive and musically intelligent singing of the evening…”
