Pianist Thérèse Malengreau: fly us to the moon, you fabulous women.

Concertzender Live: exclusive live recordings of concerts in the Netherlands and Belgium, recorded by the Concertzender.

In this episode of Concertzender Live, Leo August De Bock presents two concerts by Belgian pianist Thérèse Malengreau. The first concert took place on 7 June 2024, at the Planetarium of Brussels (B): []( The theme of this concert was: the cosmos. The second concert took place on 9 June 2024 at the Sint-Barbarakerk in the municipality of Sint-Genesius Rode, Belgium. The theme of this concert was: fabulous women in music.

Thérèse Malengreau is a Belgian concert pianist, as well as a researcher in comparative aesthetics and author of publications on the relationship between music, graphic arts, and literature. One of her grandfathers was composer and organist Paul de Malingreau, and another was modernist architect Raphaël Delville, who was the son of symbolist painter Jean Delville.

At the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, Thérèse Malengreau achieved first prizes in piano, chamber music, written harmony, counterpoint, music history, and music analysis, as well as advanced diplomas in piano and chamber music. She furthered her studies under Bernard Lemmens, Maria João Pires, Yevgeni Malinin, and Leon Fleisher.

Additionally, she earned a master’s degree in Romance Philology from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.

During her recitals and lecture-concerts, Thérèse Malengreau often interprets works by Bach, Beethoven, Liszt, and other Romantic composers, with a preference for composers whose works are rarely performed. She has introduced lesser-known pieces by Gian-Francesco Malipiero, Guillaume Lekeu, Lili and Nadia Boulanger, Frank Bridge, Alexander von Zemlinsky, Paul Hindemith, Josef Matthias Hauer, and Zoltán Kodály to her audiences.

She has brought to life works of Hans Erich Apostel, Léon Boëllmann, Louis Brassin, Maurice Delage, Arthur Horée, Charles Koechlin, Paul de Malingreau, Federico Mompou, Roland-Manuel, Franz Servais, Pierre Vellones, and Victor Vreuls. The pianist holds a strong affinity for late 19th and early 20th-century repertoire as well as contemporary music. She has performed the complete piano works of Arnold Schoenberg, Alban Berg, and Anton Webern, as well as a significant portion of Claude Debussy’s piano repertoire.

Thérèse Malengreau has been supported by various European museums and exhibition curators such as Jan Hoet, Jean Clair, and Harald Szeeman, at Musée d’Orsay, Centre Pompidou-Metz, Musée Matisse, Musée Calvet, La Boverie, Musée Jenisch, and Marta Herford…

Thérèse Malengreau teaches comparative aesthetics of the arts at the Royal Institute for Art History and Archaeology in Brussels. She also teaches piano at the Music Academy of Waterloo. Previously, she served as a professor at the Institute for Broadcasting Arts and was a research associate at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel.
