Biography Liuwe Tamminga

1953

Liuwe Tamminga was born in 1953 in Hemelum, Friesland.

He studied organ, harpsichord and composition at the Conservatory of Groningen, from which he graduated with distinction. He lived for three years in Paris where he studied with André Isoir and Jean Langlais and was awarded the Premier Prix for interpretation and the Second Prix for improvisation. In 1980 Tamminga won the First Prize Winner in the Dutch Organ Improvisation Competition, and in 1982 he was awarded the Prix d' Excellence.

Since 1982 he has been living in Bologna, where he first undertook private studies with Luigi Ferdinando Tagliavini on the early Italian organ repertory. After the restoration of the two historical instruments in the Basilica of S. Petronio he was appointed organist there. He regularly plays together with The Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century and the Cappella Musicale di San Petronio and has made many recordings with them. He has broadcast for Radio France, BRT, KRO, Radio Suisse, Danish Radio, Finnish Radio and the RAI. He has been invited to give master classes at the Accademia di Musica Italiana per Organo in Pistoia, the Conservatory of Music in Utrecht, the New England Conservatory in Boston and the Lemmens institute in Leuven. He performs all over Europe, in the U.S.A, and in Japan.

Tamminga has recorded two compact discs together with Tagliavini, one dedicated to Italian and Flemish masters and another to Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli; these were awarded the international prizes Antonio Vivaldi by the Cini Foundation in Venice and the Choc de la Musique by Le Monde.
