    Here's a name to watch: the young Dutch baritone Henk Neven was a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist two years ago and richly deserves his chance to shine. Neven's highly individual timbre is unlike any other lieder interpreter's: he sings with astonishing technical finesse, verbal acuity and a sense of wonder.
    Henk Neven’s two earlier discs for ONYX marked him out as one of the leading young baritone voices of our time. His third album for ONYX is a superbly crafted recital that takes us to Spain. Don Quixote songs from Ibert and Ravel, songs 15th & 16th century Spanish composers skilfully arranged by Arne Dorumsgaard and the rare Op.100 cycle of 6 Spanish Songs by Shostakovich complete this stunning recital. Pianist Hans Eijsackers has two moments in the Spanish sun as well with two pieces by Albeniz and Granados.

    "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. Last year I welcomed his Onyx disc of Lieder by Loewe and Schumann and this latest disc extends my admiration even further in totally exquisite singing." Gramophone
