Matangi Quartet

Matangi Quartet

Over the past twenty-three years, Matangi has grown to become one of the most important and versatile ensembles in the Dutch music scene and on the international scene.
The quartet has never limited itself to one musical style, since its foundation in 1999 at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague and the Rotterdam Conservatory. He has always engaged in new adventures, from classical to jazz and from dance to pop. Matangi have shared the stage with great classical musicians such as Maarten Koningsberger, Tania Kross, Paolo Giacometti, Severin von Eckardstein and Quatuor Ébène, and have also ventured into crossover projects, including with comedians Herman van Veen and Youp van ‘t Hek, with bandoneonist Carel Kraayenhof, with jazz trumpeter Eric Vloeimans and pianist Martin Fondse, jazz pianist Michiel Braam, DJ Kypski, jazz singers Mathilde Santing and Ruben Hein and singer-songwriters Lori Lieberman and Tom McRae. With such pioneering forays outside of classical music, Matangi knows how to excite new audiences about the string quartet.
The quartet has performed at numerous festivals, including the Delft Chamber Music Festival, the Grachtenfestival, the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, the Festival de Carthage in Tunisia, the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, the International Conservatory Festival in St. Petersburg, North Sea Jazz and the Liberation Festival Utrecht.
In 2002 the quartet was awarded the prestigious Kersjes van de Groenekan Prize, which is awarded annually to outstanding talents in Dutch chamber music.
