Notes & Reviews:

Baritone Henk Neven is a major new vocal talent. He studied with Maarten Koningsberger and Margreet Honig at the Conservatory of Amsterdam where he graduated cum laude in 2003. In 2002, Neven received a diploma cum laude from the New Opera Academy. He was awarded a Borletti-Buitoni Fellowship in 2009, is a BBC New Generation Artist and received the coveted Netherlands Music Prize in April 2011. Neven has performed at the BBC Proms, Wigmore Hall and in opera houses across Europe. On his debut recording for Onyx Classics, Neven performs Schumann's Liederkreis and a selection of lieder by Carl Loewe.

"Neven’s highly individual timbre is unlike any other lieder interpreter’s; he sings with astonishing technical finesse, verbal acuity and a youthful sense of wonder in these pieces from Schumann’s annus mirabilis of song, 1840...Eijsackers’s virtuoso piano-playing only enhances this remarkable young singer’s outstanding debut." -The Sunday Times

"His gift of bringing out word-meaning is enhanced by the clearest possible diction and by the beautifully balanced recording. His shading of dynamics and phrasing then crowns each interpretation. It is a consistent joy to hear a Lieder singer whose tone is pure over the widest range without a trace of roughness...It is a long time since I enjoyed a disc of Lieder from a young singer quite as much as this, and I long to hear more from him." -Gramophone

"[Neven] has a beautiful voice, flexible, rounded and warm, and sings, always in the middle of the note, with much intelligence and no affectation...both Neven and his excellent accompanist Hans Eijsackers manage almost to avoid sentimentality" -International Record Review

"Neven possess a lightly textured, attractive voice, and his diction is focused and expressive" -BBC Music Magazine
