Le nozze di Figaro

Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century

neven don giovanni

Don Giovanni

Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra

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

Castor et Pollux

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

With Love from Russia

Henk Neven - baritone
Hans Eijsackers - piano

A wonderful survey of Russian song, in new
arrangements. Henk Neven is joined once
again by pianist Hans Eijsackers and also
by his cellist brother Jan Bastiaan Neven.
Ranging from Glinka in the early 19th
century to Rachmaninov in the 20th century
via Borodin, Dargomyzhsky and Tchaikovsky,
the programme also features a selection from
Prokofiev's 'Chout' in arrangements for cello
& piano. A wonderfully intimate sound world
is conjured by the musicians in this recital
of well known and less well known songs
with love from Russia.

Songs by Glinka, Dargomyzhsky, Rachmaninov, Borodin,
Tchaikovsky arr. voice, cello & piano Selections from 'Chout' by Prokofiev for cello & piano.
