Javier Nuñez has been described by critics as a virtuoso harpsichordist, extraordinarily expressive and endowed with a particular taste for ornamentation. First of all, he specializes in harpsichord at the Conservatorio Superior de Sevilla and then, awarded a grant by the Department of Culture of the Regional Government, he initiates his studies in the Koninklijk Conservatorium of the Hague (Holland) as a harpsichord student of Jacques Ogg, where he obtained his Soloist Diploma. He later attended master classes with the renowned harpsichord player and organist Davitt Moroney, from whom he receives very valuable advice.
Javier Núñez is currently developing an active career both in his role as soloist and continuo player. He has given harpsichord recitals at festivals like FeMÀS in Seville (Spain), the International Festival “Harpsichord, live art” in Belgrade (Serbia) or Teatar Grad Festival in Budva (Montenegro).
He is a member of groups such as Accademia del Piacere, More Hispano and I Fedeli – based in Basel, Switzerland – and has participated in joint projects with ensembles like Seville Baroque Orchestra and Camerata Iberia. He has also been invited as a soloist by orchestras such as the Orquesta Ciudad de Granada, the Symphonic Orchestra of the Balearics (Spain) or the Reyjkavijk Kammersveit (Iceland). He has performed at the most prestigious venues in Europe as well as South America.
He has numerous recordings for both radio (RNE –Spain, WDR3 –Germany, Ö1 –Austria and RUV –Iceland) and record labels such as Carpe Diem, Pan Classics, Passacaille, Cantus, Glossa, Challenge Classics and Lindoro.
