Elly Ameling Details

Elly AmelingThe world of the song recital has been endlessly enriched by the art of Elly Ameling. Though she has performed in opera, Ameling has chosen the concert platform and the recital stage as the main focus of her performing career, now well into its fourth decade.

Elly Ameling was trained in her native Holland, where she gave her first important recital in 1961 in Amsterdam. She was highly influenced early on by the great French baritone Pierre Bernac. He instilled in her a love of song. Ameling is a natural linguist and her pronunciation and understanding of French, German, Italian and English have allowed her to program a wide variety of repertoire throughout her long career.

Almost always an exclusive Philips artist, Elly Ameling has recorded a stunning array of songs and concert literature both with orchestra and with her favoured pianist Dalton Baldwin.

Elly Ameling has received numerous honours included the Knight of the Order of Organje Nassau in 1971.
