Matthias Ziegler is one of the world's most versatile and innovative flautists. He is committed to traditional and contemporary music and concepts that cross the boundaries between classical music and jazz. Accordingly, his performances take place in a vast range of contexts: he is principal flutist with the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, and performs regularly with the percussionist Pierre Favre as well as contrabass player Mark Dresser. He is also a member of the Collegium Novum Zurich, where he has worked with Mauricio Kagel, Heinz Holliger and George Crumb.
