Biografia
Michel Runtz, *30. 10. 1955. Pianiste compositeur franco-suisse, Michel Runtz, né à Maisons-Laffitte (Paris), vit à Fribourg où il enseigne. Après avoir suivi un cursus classique à l'Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris, enseigné à Paris, écrit des musiques de chansons, présenté en récital des programmes classiques et contemporains, Michel Runtz consacre la plupart de son temps à la composition et à l'interprétation de ses œuvres en concert.

The Paris born pianist and composer Michel Runtz has French and Swiss origins, he lives and teaches in Fribourg (Switzerland).
Runtz studied at the Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris. He showed an interest in composition at an early stage by setting poems to music. He continued to write chansons from 1976 to 1980 while teaching and recording his first instrumental works.
Pierre Gabaye, winner of the Grand Prix de Rome, turned out to be his first important encounter and encouraged him to pursue his own individual style.
In 1982 Michel Runtz settled in Fribourg, Switzerland. His second important encounter was with the Swiss composer and choir master Pierre Kaelin, who invited him to work with various vocal ensembles and record his work for choir and piano "Le bel age".
Between 1984 and 1992, Michel Runtz was commissioned to compose incidental music and sound tracks for advertisements, video clips and tv documentaries. He also continued his career as a pianist, playing classical and modern works as well as his own compositions. It was during this period that he met some important personalities of contemporary music in workshops at the Centre Acanthes in France including Xenakis, Takemitsu, Murail, Aperghis. He analysed their output and worked on their interpretation under the tutilage of Claude Helffer and later Pierre-Laurent Aimard.
In addition to these musical encounters there was a third, artistic influence through Paul Delvaux and his paintings. Shortly before Delvaux's death, Michel Runtz dedicated to him the work "Paul Delvaux".
Michel Runtz has performed since 1992 with a programme gradually directed towards the performance of his own works only.
In 2000 he presented his work "Scènes de la vie musicale", a suite of six pieces, for quartet of clarinets, cello and four-hand piano in the French part of Switzerland.
In 2001 he founded the Association Jeune Musique, which organises the biennial Fribourg International Piano Competition, a competition whose programme focuses exclusively on the music of the 20th and 21st century and is open to young pianists up to the age of 18.
With "Notes and Light" he created a concept in in 2006 which suggested a new form of concert by transforming the traditional piano recital with its static stage lighting into a visual concert - an unexpected dialogue between the notes of the piano and their transposition into light. This spectacle was performed in Switzerland and China.
The eclectic approach in his artistic works led him to compose music for a fashion show by designer Franck Sorbier, as well as writing a humorous and visual piece for four-hand piano as a closing night performance to an event about Eric Satie in Paris.
Runtz's instrumental works slowly appear in the programmes of various performers and competitions.
