About the Artists
Dutch soprano ELLY AMELING has made annual visits to the United States and Canada since her American debut in 1968 in New York's Avery Fisher Hall. While her personal preference is for the German Lieder and French Melodies included in her song recitals, she is at home in all forms of singing--chamber music, concerts with full orchestra, oratorios, and opera. She has just returned from a recital and concert tour of Australia and the Far East, will perform in South America this winter, and will make her debut with the National Orchestra of Mexico in March. Her North American tour this season extends the entire width of the continent from Florida to Alaska.
Miss Ameling's list of recordings is impressive, and she has been awarded most of the world's coveted honors, including the Grand Prix du Disque, the Edison Prize, and the Stereo Review Record of the Year Award. In addition to several Schubert discs, she has recorded the complete melodies of Gabriel Faure with baritone Gerard Souzay and pianist Dalton Baldwin. A similar project dedicated to the songs of Francis Poulenc is scheduled for the summer of 1977.
DALTON BALDWIN was born in the United States where he studied at the Oberlin Conservatory and the Juilliard School of Music before going to Europe to work with Nadia Boulanger and Madeleine Lipatti. He has been permanent accompanist to Elly Ameling since 1970, and is also the accompanist of Gerard Souzay. Among other artists with whom he has performed are Jessye Norman, Pierre Fournier, and the late Jennie Tourel. Mr. Baldwin gives frequent lectures on the Art of Accompaniment, and devotes part of each season to teaching.
