The Dutch bass-baritone, Maarten Koningsberger, began his musical career as a pianist but then studied singing with Max van Egmond, Udo Reinemann, Elisabeth Schwarzkopf, and Margreet Honig. Maarten Koningsberger made ​​his opera debut in Les Indes Galantes by Rameau with the Opéra Comique. He has sung in operas from Monteverdi to W.A. Mozart to Menotti. This diversity of styles is also reflected in his song recitals, with pianists Graham Johnson and Rudolf Jansen and with lutenist Fred Jacobs, with whom he performed in concert halls and festivals all over the world. His concert tours include Europe, South Africa, the Far East, China, Israel, USA and Canada.


One of Ireland's most successful musicians, Finghin Collins was born in Dublin in 1977. He studied piano at the Royal Irish Academy of Music with John O'Conor and at the Geneva Conservatoire with Dominique Merlet. Winner of the RTÉ Musician of the Future Competition in 1994 and the Classical Category at the National Entertainment Awards in Ireland in 1998, he went on to take first prize at the Clara Haskil International Piano Competition in Switzerland in 1999. Since then he has continued to enjoy a flourishing international career that takes him all over Europe and the United States, as well to the Far East and Australia. Finghin Collins has been Artistic Director of Music for Galway since 2013 and is also the founding Artistic Director of the New Ross Piano Festival.
