Details: "Impressions:" an evening of jazz featuring organist Jean-Willy Kunz on the Kotzschmar Organ and his jazz quintet. The organ is often associated with the church, with an austere and codified musical repertoire, and with an audience from another era. Over the course of centuries, from the Middle Ages to the present, it has sometimes been a simple bystander in the history of music, but at others a key agent developing musical style. Now, in today’s era of cultural convergence and artistic crossbreeding, Impressions presents the organ in an atypical role as, accompanied by instruments with which it rarely associates, it embarks on a musical journey in search of original repertoire. Jean-Willy Kunz is the first organist in residence of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal. In addition to playing both with the orchestra and in recital, he sees to the development and showcasing of the OSM's Grand Orgue Pierre-Béique installed at Maison symphonique de Montréal.
