Willem Ravelli Hermann Schey Cornelis Schell Arnold van Mill Pieter van denBerg Robert Holl

Willem Ravelli, who debuted in 1917 as opera singer (Nazarener in Salomé), mainly became known as oratorio singer. He appeared more than 400 times in the part of Christ in the St Matthew Passion. Hermann Schey worked since 1922 in Berlin as concert and oratorio singer. He was particularly admired for his Bach interpretations. Concert tours brought him great success in the European music centres. In 1929 he sang in Amsterdam with the Concertgebouw Orchestra under Willem Mengelberg the Kindertotenlieder by Gustav Mahler, and so left a lasting impression that he returned since then annually to Holland. Johan Lammen started his singers-career as concert- and oratorio-singer, a.o. in the St Matthew Passion. On December the 1th, 1933 he performed with the company Opera Studio (of the Nederlandse Operastichting), in the Amsterdamse Stadsschouwburg the role of Achilles in Gulio Cesare by G.F.Händel, this performance became the beginning of his opera-career.
Arnold van Mill studied at the academies of Rotterdam and The Hague and continued his song-study with Mrs. Zegers the Beyl. He became the first line "house bass" for London/Decca records in the 1950s. He wielded a virile basso cantata that displayed ample bite for Wagner, while being supple enough to make him a creditable singer of Mozart bass roles such as Osmin and Sarastro. Harry van der Kamp, born in 1947 first studied law and psychology in Amsterdam before starting vocal studies with Max van Egmond and later with Herman Woltman, Alfred Deller and Pierre Bernac. Today, Harry van der Kamp is internationally known as one of the most important bass singers in the solo and ensemble repertoire of the 14th - 18th centuries. He appeared in many operas of the baroque period (by Peri, Agazzari, Monteverdi, Cavalli, Cesti, Purcell, Meder, Rameau, and Händel) and in several operas of later date. Robert Holl appears as soloist with the major orchestras, and has worked with many outstanding conductors, including Claudio Abbado, Carlo Maria Giulini, Bernard Haitink, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Sir Neville Marriner, and Riccardo Chailly, among others. As a frequent guest artist at music festivals, Holl has appeared at the Vienna Festival, Mozart Woche Salzburg, Salzburg Festspiele, Berliner Festwochen, Flanders Festival, Prague Spring, Schubertiade Hohenems, and Settimane Musicale di Stresa.
