My name is Matthijs Weskin, 29 years old, and this year for the first time with Ricciotti on tour.
In my daily life, after studying electrical engineering at TU Delft, I started working as an engineer. I enjoy combining that with my own company in light / sound and event technology.
20 years ago I started as a little boy on the flute, the first youth orchestra soon followed: Viotta, The Hague. In the years that followed, I wanted to make more music with other people and ended up with many other orchestras.
In addition to the flute, 1 other instrument attracted me all my life: hard, soft, high, low, ripping, sultry, classical, jazz, shiny, radiant, simply: versatile and beautiful. The trumpet!
The best thing about making music is playing together and rising above the music together to take the audience on a musical adventure. What attracts me in Ricciotti is that there is a even more to it: Ricciotti takes music to places where it does not take itself. This makes the musical adventure even more extensive and magical, for the audience and musician!
