ROBERT HOLL was born in Rotterdam and studied with Jan Veth and Davis Hollestelle.
Being one of the most sought-after concert soloists, he has worked with the most renowned conductors and with prestigious orchestras in Europe, the United States, and Japan. But above all he is one of the most significant Lied singer of our times. Holl’s particular interest and passion belong to the German and Russian repertoire and he feels especially attached to the oeuvre of Franz Schubert.
Concert engagements of the 2014/15 season led the artist to Utrecht, Vicenza, Japan, in the Vienna Musikverein as well as to the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg.
In the fall of 2015, Robert Holl performs Haydn’s Nelson Mass in San Francisco and the Mass in Time of War in Los Angeles under the baton of Sir András Schiff. Further highlights of the 2015/16 season include a tour through the Netherlands with the Rubens Quartet and a recital with Oleg Maisenberg at the December Nights in Moscow as well as concerts in Vicenza with Schiff.
Since 1998, Robert Holl has been a professor of Art Song and Oratorio at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.
In Austria Robert Holl was awarded the title Kammersänger and the Cross of Honor for Arts and Science. In 1997, he became honorary member of the Society of Music Lovers in Vienna. In his native country he has been “Ridder in de Orde van de Nederlandse Leeuw” since 2007.
