A solid classical education combined with years of experience in renowned orchestras forms the perfect departure point for Wim Van Hasselt to venture out on bold new paths and to go beyond the bounds of the expected. For Van Hasselt, formative works of the past become truely vivid when contrasted with music of today.

Wim Van Hasselt 'sings with the trumpet' say the critics. The trumpeter is at home performing on Europe's stages as a soloist as well as in chamber ensemble or orchestral formations. “Van Hasselt is an exceptionally fine player with all the equipment in his armoury to delight, surprise and challenge the listener at every turn.“
