Tini Mathot was born in Amsterdam. She studied piano and harpsichord at the Sweelinck Conservatory in her native town.
She works in tight collaboration with her husband (and former teacher) Ton Koopman with whom she regularly performs in concert halls all over the world. Their repertoire for either two harpsichords, harpsichord and pianoforte, harpsichord and organ or two organs, ranges from well-known to rediscovered unknown works.
Tini Mathot plays regularly as a soloist, continuoplayer or accompanist. She is a founding member of the Corelli-Ensemble, together with recorder player Reine-Marie Verhagen Verhagen. Her recording of Haydn trios together with Jaap ter Linden and Andrew Manze was awarded a Diapason d’Or.
In a 2005 recording she accompanied baritone Klaus Mertens in Schubert’s Winterreise, playing an original Rosenberger fortepiano. On her most recent CD she plays both organ and harpsichord, performing J.S. Bach’s triosonatas together with Reine-Marie Verhagen (recorder).
As recording producer for Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir and other leading ensembles she has produced numerous records for Erato, Teldec, Antoine Marchand / Challenge Classiscs and other labels.
Tini Mathot is professor of harpsichord at the Royal Conservatory The Hague.
