HARRY, Heine in Holland is a program of songs written by 19th-century Dutch composers on German texts by the renowned poet Heinrich Heine, who before his fame was simply known as "Harry." The program was recorded on CD two years ago, complete with an Audiobook of Heine's memoirs, read by Dutch novelist Arnon Grunberg. The CD received highest praise in the Dutch press. For this performance Shuann Chai will be on piano and Philip Huff will narrate excerpts from Heinrich Heine's memoirs.

Heinrich was born as "Harry", a young Jewish boy who, like many others, aspired to study at university, be accepted into high society and enjoy other fruits of fame that would hopefully come his way after converting to Christianity. Though in life he never acquired all this, his poetry inspired some of the greatest composers in the Western classical tradition, like Schubert, Schumann and Charles Ives.

Dutch bass-baritone Marc Pantus, recently praised by Swiss national press for his "brilliant" singing and acting in Rossini's opera La Gazzetta, is at home in opera as well as oratorio and concert repertoire. This season he sang Bach's Magnificat with the renowned ensemble Vox Luminis, Don Profondo in Rossini's Il Viaggio a Reims with the Dutch National Opera, and a series of three concerts with Schubert Lieder.

Marc Pantus also received high praise from San Francisco Classical Voice for his performance of the bass solos with California Bach Society on the weekend of October 7 to 9:

"Among the soloists bass baritone Marc Pantus stood out. Singing the roles of Peter and Pilate, he brought a deeply felt texture to the dual tasks. His voice, at once rich and slightly raw, captured the disciple's anguish and the more measured but compelling moral torment of the Roman leader whose actions lead to Christ's crucifixion."
