Petr Matěják studied in Philadelphia at the Curtis Institute of Music and at the Hanns Eisler Academy of Music in Berlin. He was strongly influenced by the violinist Václav Hudeček, with whom he often gives concerts together. Before joining the Konzerthausorchester, he was First Concertmaster of the Orchestra of the Komische Oper Berlin for three years.
That you can always discover new pieces and it’s still a lot of fun when you play something you already know.
I wanted to become a pilot, but music appealed to me so much that later I didn’t give a second thought as to whether it was the right decision or not.
The endless choice of pieces and instrumentations and the possibilities that the violin offers. And above all, that you can never say that there is nothing interesting left to play :)
