The results of Keck’s editorial work have been performed across the globe, particularly in Germany, where they received the German award for music edition twice in a very short period of time, for Orphée aux Enfers  and La Vie parisienne. Also in France, where many of his editions were premiered, the Offenbach Edition Keck OEK received several awards, eg the Prix Michel Garcin of the Académie du disque lyrique (Les Fées du Rhin) or the Diapason d’or (La Grande-Duchesse de Gérolstein).

Jean-Christoph Keck is an artistic adviser to numerous people in the world of music, the most important of whom is Marc Minkowski. He regularly inspires or contributes to radio productions.
 
Graduating from the Conservatoire National Supérieur in Paris and the University of Aix-en-Provence, Jean-Christophe Keck received a particularly wide-ranging musical training: musicology, conducting, composition (with Pierre Villette), singing (Christiane Eda-Pierre), piano, writing, etc. Parallel to working as a singer (tenor at the Opéra-Bastille, the Festival d’Aix-en-Provence, Lyon oprea, etc.), he dedicated himself from an early age towards a career in conducting. He has made recordings for film, radio and television including various opéra-bouffes and film scores of his own composition. He conducted the Orchestre National de Montpellier and the Concerts Paseloup, and he is also the musical director of the opera festival of Châteaux de Bruniquel.
