Yury Kunets(*1957) is a Russian composer, musician and producer.
Kunets began composing while studying in a public school. He wrote songs for the ›Impulse Five‹ band in the late 80ies. From 2004 Yury was involved in several musical TV projects as a producer. Along with author and director Maxim Kapitanovsky, he created two musical films: Blame it all on the Beatles (›Rossiya‹ state TV channel) and Don’t Shoot The Musicians (2007) both edited by D. Zavilgelsky. In collaboration with Mikhail Tanich and Kirill Krastoshevsky he composed songs for many artists, including the legendary band ›Pesnyary‹, Mikhail Mien and many others.
By 2011 Kunets had accumulated a considerable repertoire of instrumental pieces to record and release. In collaboration with award-winning American conductor Lee Holdridge (two Grammys and eight Emmys) and British recording producer Christopher Alder (ten Grammys), Yury began recording a series of symphonic music albums.
