CODARTS ROTTERDAM

As of September 2016, Henk will join the Codarts Rotterdam classical music voice faculty.

Henk: "I am very happy that I can be a part of the singing team at Codarts. Codarts and Rotterdam breathe the right atmosphere for me, one of energy and progress, based on tradition. I am motivated to share my experience. Together with colleagues from the department of classical singing I look forward to preparing younger singers for the future. I think there could be new generation of singers trained in Rotterdam with a sound technical basis and a broad artistic perspective."

Castor et Pollux
Rameau

Opéra de Dijon


"Le Pollux de Henk Neven nous ravit. La voix est pleine, ronde, bien timbrée, toujours intelligible."
Yvan Beuvard, Forumopera.com

"Le baryton-basse néerlandais Henk Neven incarne toute la noblesse et l’élégance qui conviennent à Pollux…"
Jean-Marc Piriou, bachtrack.com

"..le Pollux de Henk Neven a de la tenue et du sentiment, sinon le moelleux désirable."
Jean-Philippe Grosperrin, diapaison

" L’engagement des chanteurs se situe à la hauteur de l’enjeu : leur attention au texte et à la déclamation mérite tous les éloges. En Pollux, Henk Neven familier du rôle, ardent, vibrant (superbe „present des dieux” - )"
Michel Le Naour, concertclassic.com

"Pollux (Henk Neven) sait exprimer aussi bien la détermination que l’amour fraternel avec une égale vigueur, et il a dans cette version un rôle primordial"
Joelle Farenc, resmusica.com
