Notes & Reviews:

Baritone Henk Neven's Onyx recording entitled The Sea features a diverse collection of songs by Fauré, Schubert and Debussy focusing on the themes of water and the sea. The album was conceived during a visit to the coastal town of Aldeburgh, where Neven took a walk by the water - in the dark. The overwhelming smells and sounds of the sea led the singer to reflect on the inspiration that the sea and the water have been for generations of poets and composers. Joined by pianist Hans Eijsackers, Neven sings selections including Fauré's L'Horizon chimérique, Debussy's Beau soir and Schubert's Auf der Donau.

Classical Music, 17th November 2012
A delightful recital ... Neven's melodies are every bit as persuasive as his lieder ... the recording team does the project proud.

Gramophone Magazine, February 2013
Rarely do you hear, even in the rarefied world of French melodie and German Lieder, a baritone who sings with such subtlety in shading of dynamic and tone as the Dutch baritone Henk Neven...and this latest disc extends my admiration even further in totally exquisite singing...Altogether a most memorable song record.
