Pianist Erwin Deleux (born 1973) studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp and at the Lemmens Institute in Leuven (Belgium). As a student of Alan Weiss, he obtained a Master's degree in Piano and Chamber Music. Deleux has won prizes at various international competitions, including Cantabile, the European Piano Teachers Association Competition, and the Stefaan de Jong competition.
At Conservatorium Maastricht, Erwin Deleux is a rehearsal pianist for chamber music and a member of the Artistic Council. He has an extremely varied professional life, with performances at major venues including the Singel in Antwerpen and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. These are regularly broadcast by the leading radio and TV stations in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. Erwin 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. He performs with orchestras including Symfonieorkest Vlaanderen and the European Philharmonia.
Deleux's greatest passion, however, is chamber music. He regularly accompanies born musicians like Philippe Benoit, Marc Tooten, Hans Van Kerckhoven and An Lauwereins. The CD recordings he made with the Emanon ensemble did not go unnoticed by the specialist press. He created the piano concerto by Frank Nuyts and recorded it with the Vlaams Sinfonietta. He regularly performs at festivals in Latvia, Italy and Germany.
