Baritone Henk Neven's Onyx recording entitled The Sea features a diverse collection of songs by Faure, Schubert and Debussy focusing on unique colors and emotions inspired by water and the sea. The album was conceived during recording sessions in Suffolk for Neven's Onyx debut Auf einer Burg. While visiting the coastal town of Aldeburgh, Neven took a walk by the water - in the dark. The smells and sounds of the sea were overwhelming, and led the singer to reflect on the inspiration that the sea and the water have been for generations of poets and composers. Joined by pianist Hans Eijsackers, Neven sings selections including Faure's L'Horizon chimerique, Debussy's Beau soir and Schubert's Auf der Donau.
