Music is where I am so you will find my soul in these tracks.
I'm a Swiss violinist and conductor and do a variety of things: currently I'm an Artist-in-Residence and music curator at the Festspielhaus St.Pölten, Austria, I'm also the principal second violin of the Orchestra Mozart Bologna and a member of the Lucerne Festival Orchestra, both founded and directed by Claudio Abbado, two of the world's best orchestras. My passion are innovations in classical music - "alt-classical". New performance formats, new meanings for music. And new music that connects the classical tradition to our life in the 21st century. Another passion is social change, I'm member of the Executive Committee of "Musicians for Human Rights" www.musiciansforhumanrights.org
Check also my band "Matteis Project - Baroque ReImagined" for mellow transbaroque versions of Baroque music, played on electric violin and electric guitar.
