ANTON PAUW

Anton Pauw (1961) is one of the two organists who are employed by the city of Haarlem, to play the famous Christiaan Müller Organ (1738) in St. Bavo's Church.
His tasks are to play the Sunday services, including Vespers in summer, and to organize the yearly series of City Organ Concerts, a concert series that can claim to represent the oldest unbroken tradition in the Netherlands.

Anton Pauw studied Organ and Church Music with Piet Kee, Klaas Bolt and Jan Boeke at the Sweelinck Conservatorium Amsterdam. After receiving his degree, he followed courses with a.o. Ton Koopman and Jean Boyer (Paris).
Anton Pauw is an eminent improvisor and a lively interpreter. His playing was recorded several times on TV and CD. He wrote several works for choir and organ.

Next to St. Bavo's, Anton Pauw is the organist of the Van Covelen-Hess organ in Haarlem's Nieuwe Kerk.

He conducts the Oude Bavo Cantorij – the regular choir of St. Bavo's and Nieuwe Kerk – and Cappella Alkmaar.
