neven don giovanni

REVIEWS
Don Giovanni
Mozart

Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra

"Neven’s baritone, was beautiful, well-balanced, flexible, and nuanced."
- Opernwelt, May 2015

"Henk Neven's attractive tone... carried Don Giovanni's lines confidently and stylishly."
Opera, July 2015

"Henk Neven in character as Don Giovanni had a consistently great and dramatic nerve. A magnificent voice that changed as often as he changed his strategy to conquer women.”
- Bergens Tidende





REVIEWS
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



Reviews for Wigmore Hall recitals

“He’s an engaging presence on the podium, with a firm, resonant baritone.”
Neil Fisher, Times, April 2014

"Thus Neven made "Ganymed" burst with life and found a perfect stillness in the two Wandrers Nachtlieder…”
Mark Valencia, The Arts Desk, May 2014

RAVE REVIEWS for 'THE SEA'

"Every so often a golden-voiced (or is it bronze?, I’m never sure) baritone comes along, one with intelligent musicianship, an ease with language (both his own and non-native), and good sense about repertoire choices. Henk Neven, a 30-something Dutch singer of recitals, oratorios, and opera, exemplifies all of those things, and he and his pianist partner, Hans Eijsackers, have put together a very fine program. "
ClassicsToday.com, 2013

"Rarely do you hear a baritone who sings with such subtlety in shading of dynamic and tone as the Dutch baritone Henk Neven."
"Altogether a most memorable song record."
Gramophone, February 2013

"An adventurous program and a cd to cherish."
Telegraaf, January 2013

"Here is a singer at the top of his game."
Trouw, November 2012

"His strength lies in the intimate beauty of his voice"
NRC Handelsblad, 2012
