Welcome to the website of concert organist, pianist and church musician Matthias Havinga.
Matthias enjoys a busy international concert career. He recorded many CD's, made countless other recordings and runs a successful Youtube-channel. Havinga is organist-titulaire of the Ronde Lutherse or Koepelkerk and liturgical organist of the Oude Kerk, Amsterdam.
He is also Professor of Organ at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam.
Reviews on Matthias' organ playing:
"...playful, sophisticated timing and dangerously quick pedal playing. Havinga masters his profession."
"...pure, true musicianship and an inner feeling for the ‘right’ musical interpretation are expressed in an inimitable way by Matthias Havinga."
In July and August Matthias will be playing and teaching concerts and masterclasses.
In July Matthias teaches and plays a concert at the Academia de Órgano Fray Joseph de Echevarría in the north of Spain. There is also a week-long tour of Finland, with concerts in Helsinki cathedral and the church of Naantali (Turku) with its beautiful baroque-inspired organ. In Naantali Matthias will be teaching masterclasses to students of the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki.
In the Netherlands Matthias plays in Valkenburg, Amersfoort, Monnickendam, Kampen and Putten. There'll be a concert in Oostkamp (Flanders) and a short tour with the Nederlandse Bachvereniging to, among others, the St. Petrikirche in Bremen, and a concert at the Early Music Festival Utrecht.
