Mattias Spee (1997) started playing the piano when he was five years old. He studied with David Kuyken and Ralph van Raat, and took lessons with Pascal Rogé, Håkon Austbø and Shunske Sato. Chamber music plays an important role in his life. For years he has been part of the Goudsbloemtrio, together with cellist Hadewych van Gent and clarinettist Ana Prazeres, and he forms a regular duo with cellist Chieko Donker Duyvis. In his concert programs Mattias regularly incorporates contemporary music, one of his other great passions. Mattias has won various prizes, including the Princess Christina Competition, the Steinway Piano Competition and the VriendenCultuurPrijs. He gave concerts at home and abroad, among others in Germany, Italy and Taiwan. In addition to his work as a pianist, Mattias also works as a choir accompanist and choir conductor. Mattias plays on a Bösendorfer grand piano from 1979, given to him on loan by the National Musical Instrument Fund.
