Elly Ameling (b1933)

Elly Ameling studied singing with Jo Bollekamp and Jacoba Dresden-Dhont in Rotterdam, and later with Pierre Bernac in Paris. She made her concert début as early as 1953 in Rotterdam, won the Noordewier Prize for singing at s’Hertogenbosch in 1956, and took first prize at the Geneva International Music Competition in 1958. She then launched her musical career, primarily as a lieder, oratorio and concert singer. She established herself as one of the most outstanding singers of her generation in the music of JS Bach, also earning a very high reputation as an interpreter of Handel, Mozart and Mendelssohn, as well as of Baroque music in general. As a lieder singer she proved to be outstanding in the songs of Schubert, Schumann, Brahms and Wolf. She gave numerous concerts in her home country as well as in Austria, Belgium and Switzerland. Highlights of her busy career included taking the solo soprano parts in the first performance of Frank Martin’s Le Mystère de la Nativité in 1959 and in Mahler’s Symphony No 4 at the Salzburg Festival with Rafael Kubelík conducting. She made her British début in 1966 and first sang in America in 1968, with a recital at New York’s Lincoln Centre, after which she toured America and Canada with great success during 1971. She took part in the Spoleto Festival in 1967 and in the Montreux Festival during the following year.
