Anthony Genge was born in Vancouver, in 1952. He worked as a performer of jazz and rhythm and blues for a number of years before studying composition formally. Genge was a student of American composer Morton Feldman. He also studied composition at McGill University and the University of Victoria, and with the Japanese composer Jo Kondo in Tokyo. In the 1970s and 1980s he visited several Pacific-Rim countries, studying their traditional music. By the 1990s, the style and influences in his music had become increasingly diverse, and since that time his music has been characterized by its distinctive harmonic language, elegant orchestration and postmodern mix of musical elements.

Genge’s solo, chamber, and orchestral music, has been performed and commissioned by leading soloists and ensembles throughout Canada, the United States, Europe and Japan, and his music has also been used for dance and film. Many of his compositions are available on recordings.

In addition to his work as a composer of classical music, Genge continues with a busy career as a jazz pianist, performing with leading Canadian and international jazz performers. His critically acclaimed jazz trio recording Blues Walk is available from Roadhouse Records.
