Matthieu Michel – Swiss Music Prize 2016
Added on 21 September 2022
Born in Fribourg in 1963, Matthieu Michel is acknowledged as one of the great trumpeters and flugelhorn players of European jazz. He was a member of the Vienna Art Orchestra from 1992 and has worked with Susanne Abbuehl, Malcolm Braff, Richard Galliano and Daniel Humair.
He has released seven albums in various line-ups with Swiss and international musicians on jazz labels ranging from the prestigious to the less known. He owes his seductive power to his unique timbre and flair for improvisation, as well as his qualities of introspection and lyricism.
