PIANO RECITAL Jozef De Beenhouwer - piano The Belgian pianist Jozef De Beenhouwer is a welcome guest in Sent. For his program he has chosen, among other things, the ingenious late Sonata opus 109 by Ludwig Van Beethoven. In addition, he plays some masterpieces from the Romantic repertoire, including those by Robert Schumann. After completing a complete degree in pharmacy (Leuven, 1970), Jozef De Beenhouwer devotes himself exclusively to music. As a student of Lode Backx at the Chapelle Reine Elisabeth (Brussels) and at the Royal Flemish Conservatory of Antwerp, he passed the final exam piano summa cum laude in 1975. In the nineties he perfected himself in the subject of interpretation in Florence with David Kimball. De Beenhouwer has performed in recitals and as a soloist with orchestras in most European countries, in the USA and in South Korea. He often performs at song recitals with well-known singers such as Ria Bollen, Robert Holl, Nina Stemme, and Werner van Mechelen. From 1986 to 1996, Jozef De Beenhouwer was the official accompanist at the Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition for Violin and Voice in Brussels. He is also a regular guest at the Brahms Festival in Mürzzuschlag. Together with the Wiener Symphoniker he played the world premiere of Robert Schumann's Concerto movement in D minor (1839) in 1986, followed by the world premiere of Clara Schumann's Concerto movement in F minor (1847) in 1992. Both works, left only as fragments, were supplemented by the pianist and published by Breitkopf & Härtel/Wiesbaden. Jozef De Beenhouwer has released numerous records and CDs, including works by Schumann, Brahms and Belgian composers on the Phaedra label. For his recordings of Peter Benoit's and Joseph Ryelandt's piano works, he received the Prix Caecilia twice. In 1991 he made the first complete recording of Clara Schumann's piano compositions on 3 CDs. For his special services to the work of Robert and Clara Schumann, he was honored in 1993 with the Robert Schumann Prize of the City of Zwickau. Until 2020 he taught as a professor at the Royal Conservatory in Antwerp. Jozef De Beenhouwer is also often sought after as a juror at international piano competitions.
