Born in Bruges in a family of musicians, Mathilde studied in Antwerp, Paris and Munich before winning the position of solo harpist at the Residentieorkest in The Hague. As a soloist, she received recognition in several competitions such as the USA International Harp Competition, where she won a bronze medal and the concerto prize. Mathilde’s interest for chamber music has led to collaborations with several musicians. Her duet with Emma Wauters has been invited in Bozar and Concertgebouw Brugge and she is a founding member of Gilu.
Interested in a broad spectrum of music, she regularly joins larger ensembles such as HERMESensemble or I Justiniani.
Mathilde released her solo album Whispers of Tales in 2022, with appreciated support of the SWUK foundation.
