Following studies at the Köln Musikhoch-schule with Boris Pergamenschikow, Matthew has performed at major venues and festivals worldwide. He has appeared with the RPO, LPO, RLPO, CBSO, EUCO, Manchester Camerata and Ural Philharmonic, given solo performances at the Glastonbury and Latitude festivals, recorded for Sony, Naxos and Avie, given over fifty world premieres, appeared in recital at Wigmore Hall, SBC and Salle Gaveau and broadcast widely on TV and Radio.

Matthew combines these core, ‘classical’ activities with a uniquely pioneering outlook both within music and across disciplines:
