オランダ少年合唱団 Holland Boys Choir

The Holland Boys Choir was a Dutch boys' choir founded in 1984 by the Dutch conductor and Bach expert Pieter Jan Leusink as Stadsknapenkoor Elburg .

From 2016, Leusink gave up the boys' choir in favor of a mixed adult choir for performances of Baroque music.

The choir was based in the medieval church of St. Nicholas in the small Dutch town of Elburg . He cultivated his own musical style, which was based on the English choral tradition. Leusink's original goal was to perform the music of Johann Sebastian Bach with male and male voices as far as this was reasonable. He changed this goal around 2016 and from then on performed Bach's music with a mixed adult choir.

The boys' choir appeared regularly on Dutch radio and television. The choir had recorded numerous CDs and DVDs. Due to the CD recordings of Bach's Matthew Passion (BWV 244) and the 60 CDs comprehensive recording of all Bach church cantatas together with the Netherlands Bach Collegium, the choir also gained international fame.

The choir performed Bach's St. Matthew Passion in an annual series of concerts. He gave an annual public summer and Christmas concert series. He frequently performed with pianists Jan Vayne and Louis van Dijk .The choir completed concert tours to France (Paris, Notre Dame), England (Great Cathedral Tour and St. Martin-in-the-Fields) and Latvia (Riga Cathedral). The choir was also allowed to perform before Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands .
