Welcome to the website of concert organist, pianist and teacher 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 of the wonderful organs at 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."
The year 2024 starts for Matthias with a concert in the international festival 'Pagine d'organo' in Treviso, Italy, where the Foundation Antiqua Vox organizes a Bach concert.
In March and April Matthias will play many concerts with the Netherlands Bach Society, performing 14 St. Matthew Passions on different locations in the Netherlands, and in the Zaterdagmatinee of Het Concertgebouw Amsterdam CPE Bach 'Die Auferstehung und Himmelfahrt Jesu'.
Spring brings another Bach-concert in the St.Niklaaskerk Ghent, where the organ series collects money for the restoration of the Cavaillé-Coll organ that has been silent for over 60 years already. With recorder player Hester Groenleer Matthias will play two varied programs in Rolde and Kapelle, and finally there will be two days of recordings for the great AllofBach-project on the wonderful organ of the Walburgiskerk, Zutphen.
