Edicson Ruiz was born in 1985, in Caracas, Venezuela. He began playing double bass when he was 11 years old. Just six years later, Ruiz became the youngest-ever member of the Berlin Philharmonic. On Thursday's Performance Today, hear Edicson Ruiz - front and center - with the Luxembourg Philharmonic, performing a concertante for double bass by Nino Rota.
