Arthur De Greef (10 October 1862 – 29 August 1940) was a Belgian pianist and composer. Born in Louvain, he won first prize in a local music composition when he was only 11, and subsequently enrolledat the Brussels Conservatoire. His main teacher there was Louis Brassin, a former pupil of Ignaz Moscheles, although he also took lessons from other staffers at the institution, including JosephDupont, François-Auguste Gevaert and Fernand Kufferath.[1] After graduating with high distinction from the Conservatoire at the age of 17, De Greef went to Weimar to complete his studies under Franz Liszt.He was a Liszt pupil for two years.[2] Following the Weimar sojourn, De Greef embarked on a successful career as a concert pianist, travelling widely. He was a friend of Edvard Grieg, whose PianoConcerto he had played publicly in 1898, and who called him "the best performer of my music I have met Arthur De Greef with". In addition, he enjoyed the endorsement of Camille SaintSaëns. British criticJonathan Woolf has written: "De Greef was, in all respects, an intensely musical, non-sensationalist, eloquent and impressive musician and whilst not being averse to some of the interventionisttactics of his contemporaries (retouching of the score) remained sympathetically self-effacing".[2] De Greef composed a sizeable quantity of music, virtually all of which is now unheard. Among his worksare two piano concertos. He was a devoted teacher, and taught piano at the Brussels Conservatoire for many years.[2]
