Jean-Willy Kunz

, organ

Jean-Willy Kunz first discovered the subtleties of the piano and the organ in the course of his early training at the Grenoble Conservatory. He went on to distinguish himself in organ classes at the Lyon Conservatory. Here, in 1998, he was unanimously awarded a goldmedal, the first in a long series of awards. At the same time, he began exploring unbeaten paths in jazz piano, and created an unusual saxophone-organ duo. At the beginning of the 21st century he crossed the Atlantic to settle in the Montreal region, attracted by its high concentration of organs, his favorite instrument, and by their ease of access. He continued his studies at the Conservatoire demusique de Montréal, winning prizes in organ, harpsichord, harmony, and counterpoint. His talent was recognized with a second prize at the Grand Prix de Chartres international organ competition in 2008. In 2010, at the time of this recording, he is completing a doctorate in organ performance at McGill University in Montreal.
