Death of a much-loved bass-baritone, 68main
Basia Jaworski informs us of the death of Pieter Vis, a prolific concert singer and larger-than-life personality on the Dutch music scene. Pieter suffered a cerebral haemorrhage on Friday.
Starting out as a boy soprano, he became a prolific broadcaster, writer and musicologist. He occupied a debating space on Facebook as Piotr Ryba, the Russian translation of his name.
