He is an American, Juliard trained, currently Professor of piano at the Brussels Conservatory. He was one of teh prize winners at the Queen Elizabeth competition a few years ago. He is pretty active in the Belgian music circuit. I've heard him a few times both as a soloist and in chamber music. He tends to play a good deal of the lesser known repertory and has made many recordings (for obscure labels however).

On the subject of Belgian based pianists who should be better known, check out the Brazilian Eliane Rodrigues. She teaches at the conservatory here in Antwerp. A very different style but equally interesting. www.ElianeRodrigues.com

I hear Blumenthal regularly in Berlin. He has a light and fluid style and does a lot of chamber music. Not the most exciting player. A first-rate player of second-rate repertory (and vice versa).

wk,

Accurate summary, although a little unkind!

I recently came across a recording of Felicien David's Les Brises d'Orient, a collection of piano pieces performed by Blumenthal. I must say I am impressed. Chopin is all over this music in terms of style and approach. I'll admit that, melodically, David is not as tuneful as Chopin, but that's really not a fair assessment. How many writers of piano music are as tuneful as Chopin, Beethoven or Mozart? I enjoy the album immensely and rank it up there with recordings I have of Liszt, Rachmaninov and Scriabin.
