Richard Blumenfeld

Richard Blumenfeld started playing piano at the age of 5 and has perfect pitch! He has a heavy classical background, as you can hear in his amazing piano pieces.

 

1. Who is your biggest musical influence and why?

My biggest musical influence is a conglomerate of sources. In short, I would say it's a combination of Chopin and Led Zeppelin, which sounds really weird but true. Whenever I 'solo' or improvise on the piano I always use elements in their music, especially Jimmy Page's live performances, as inspirations. Chopin was my favorite classical composer so when I played only classical piano I liked playing his works because it gave you some freedom in how to interpret the notes; you didn't have to play everything like a robot. So on a piano, Chopin and Jimmy Page actually have a little bit in common.

 

2. What is your earliest memory of music?

My earliest memory of music is classical music. It's all I listened to (thanks mom and dad) when I was a kid. So I had classical playing non-stop all the time, and I enjoyed it really. It gave me a good foundation to do what I do when I cover the songs I have on my youtube account.

 

3. What is your ultimate goal as an artist?

My goal is to get the world to listen to what I can do. I think I have a gift and I'd love to share it with everybody. The problem is because it's on solo piano, most people probably initially discard it and can't imagine, say Metallica or Oasis or Avicii, sounding this good on a piano. So my goal, ultimately, is to spread my music!
