Thérèse MalengreauArtist website
Born into an artistic family, the Belgian pianist Thérèse Malengreau was awarded her first prizes and advanced diplomas at the Brussels Royal Conservatory of Music and holds a degree in romance philology from the Université libre de Bruxelles. Her teachers include Nicole Henriot-Schweitzer, Bernard Lemmens, Yevgeni Malinin and Leon Fleisher. Her career as a recitalist and chamber music player has taken her throughout Europe. Her repertoire ranges from Bach to the contemporary works, with a preference for music from the turn of the nineteenth century to the twentieth. She has discovered and given first performances of a number of scores from both the past and the present. Connections between music, visual arts and literature are at the centre of her research and career, sometimes in the context of exhibitions and international artistic projects. Her CD+books in this field complement a rich list of monographic albums for solo piano, with several world premières, all of which were acclaimed by critics worldwide.
