Wintz Wintz

Pascal Wintz was born in 1966 in the French Alps near the beautiful city of Annecy. After obtaining his diplomas for piano jazz and composition from the Conservatoire Populaire de Genève, Pascal Wintz turned towards classical music, obtaining the prize “Gabriela de Agostini” and entered the class of virtuosity at the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris.

“First of all, I learned to improvise on the piano in pure jazz-man style and gave my first jazz concerts”, he asserts. “Then, I studied the extremely demanding discipline of classical music. Whilst studying in Paris, I interpreted the Beethoven's 3rd Concerto with the Cities University Symphony Orchestra”. Pascal Wintz then made a start giving classical recitals: The United Stated Foundation in Paris, The French Alliance in Denver, The Red Cross Museum in Geneva, Paquet Cruises on the Mediterranean Sea, a tour with the Orchestra of the Savoy Region of France. When his first passion caught up with him, Pascal Wintz introduced jazz into his recitals and presented a cocktail of music from Bach to Duke Ellington.

Inspired by American Musical Comedies and 1930's Jazz, he found a repertoire which suited his musical talents.

When his first passion caught up with him, he introduced jazz into his recitals and performed his variegated programs from Bach to Duke Ellington. Through American musical comedies and 1930's Jazz, he found a repertoire which fitted his musical aspirations. Using a fluent neo-classical writing style, he has adapted these popular themes for the piano and has proved his talents as an improviser and interpreter.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
