Tatjana Blome

Tatjana Blome took first prize in the Steinway Competition at the age of twelve and a year later gave her first piano recital. In 1995 she made her début with Brahms’s Concerto No. 1 at the Berlin Philharmonie. Until she was fourteen she was taught by her father, Josef-Matthias Blome, continuing in Detmold with Renate Kretschmar-Fischer, in Berlin with Heidrun Holtmann and Aribert Reimann and in Munich with masterclasses under Gerhard Oppitz, dedicating herself, at the same time, to German and theological studies.

She has appeared throughout Germany in recitals and as a soloist with various orchestras. She has also appeared as an accompanist in song recitals, notably with Dietrich Henschel and Elvira Hasanagic, and in duos with the saxophonist Frank Lunte, and the violinist Elisabeth Glass. She has some 70 recordings to her credit, for Deutsche Grammophon, EDA, Naxos and others. On the Grand Piano label, she has released two volumes of Gerhard Frommel’s piano sonatas [GP606 and 640] to critical acclaim, with MusicWeb International describing them as “nuanced… powerful performances” and American Record Guide finding “one thing after another to marvel at and delight in.”
