ABOUT
NEXT E V E N T S​

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."

Matthias starts the new concert season with two organ concerts in Germany.  The St. Ludwig church in Darmstadt was built in 1822 and a musical evening is devoted  to this anniversary. In Friedrichshafen, close to Switzerland, Matthias is playing some of his favourite French romantic composers, Jehan Alain and Maurice Duruflé.

Then, a long concert tour in the Netherlands by the Nederlandse Bachvereniging follows, as well as three concerts with the Nederlands Kamerkoor.

Finally, there are a few concerts with soprano Klaartje van Veldhoven & Matthias playing the programme of their new CD 'Miroir de Peine', full of Dutch 20th-century music by especially Hendrik Andriessen and Henk Badings.
