Marko Churnchetz is one of Slovenia’s most heralded contemporary musicians and renowned exports, based in New York City. On the international scene he is known as a formidable young multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger and producer who easily works across genres and in particular jazz, classical and popular music.

Churnchetz was born May 15, 1986 in Maribor, Slovenia and by the age of age six his musical path began by studying classical music on accordion and then piano at the age of ten. A prodigious talent, by his teens he was a multiple award-winner in both national and international competitions, and he earned a classical piano degree at the Conservatory of Music and Ballet Maribor, Slovenia in 2005 as well as jazz piano degree at the University of Music and Dramatic Arts in Graz, Austria in 2009 where he graduated with honors.

He has released four albums as a leader: Signature and Moral Interchange (both released in 2010 on B.A.S.E.). His third high critically acclaimed album Devotion, featuring Mark Shim (saxophone), Chris Tordini (doublebass) and Justin Brown (drums), released on Whirlwind Recordings, the prolific London-based imprint was selected among 20 best jazz releases of 2014 by the famous jazz publication “All About Jazz”.

Churnchetz’s forth album as a leader RUTHENIA (Fresh Sound, New Talent, 2017), featuring an outstanding jazz quartet with Mike Moreno on guitar, Chris Jennings on doublebass,Rudy Royston on drums and 11-piece chamber orchestra is a clear example of how many contemporary musicians are no longer concerned with genre boundaries. This album is a hommage to the greatest Russian Composers of the 20th Century:

Dmitry Shostakovich, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Sergei Prokofiev, Alexandr Scriabin and Igor Stravinsky.
