Erwin Deleux

Pianist Erwin Deleux studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp and at the Lemmens Institute in Leuven. As a student of Alan Weiss, he obtained a master’s degree in piano and chamber music. Deleux has won prizes in various international competitions, including Cantabile, the European Piano Teachers’ Association Competition, the International Durlet Prize and the Stefaan de Jonghe competition.

Erwin teaches piano at the music academy of Herzele. At Conservatorium Maastricht, he works as a rehearsal pianist, a member of the Teachers’ Council and chairman of the Academic Council. He has an extremely varied professional life, with performances at major venues including the Singel in Antwerp and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. These are regularly broadcast by leading radio and TV stations in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. Erwin has performed as a soloist at the Chopin Festival and the Festival of Flanders. His interpretations of Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov and Ravel concertos have been widely praised.

Deleux’s greatest passion, however, is chamber music. He regularly accompanies born musicians like Philippe Benoit, Marc Tooten and Raf De Keninck. “The Fiddler and the Diva” (Hans Van Kerckhoven and An Lauwereins) will go on tour for many years.

The CD recordings he made with the Emanon ensemble did not go unnoticed by the specialist press. He created the piano concerto ‘Admiration in innocence’ by composer Frank Nuyts and recorded it with the Vlaams Sinfonietta.

Additionally, Erwin started composing music in his own post classical language. His piano cycle “Silent Songs” was presented at “TEDx Hasselt” and at the MasP Festival in Como, Italy. In 2020, he was rewarded the first price in the Fidelio Composition Contest and presented a full cd with his piano music. His works are finding increasing attention in Germany, Spain and the USA.
