Born and raised in a musical family, Frank DeLange soon grew familiar with the sound of great piano composers from the Romantic and early Modern era. All through his childhood his parents endlessly played recordings of the works of Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Satie and Debussy and thus introduced young Frank to the world of Romanticism. DeLange completed his classic training at the conservatory and started working as a pianist writing for and accompanying other artists.
The urge to capture his emotions of a life tha had alwats been full and intense led him to work on a repetoire of his own. He had to turn 46 before he felt his evolution as a pianist, composer and as a human being was at his crowning point and he started writing, producing and recording his first album.
DeLange writes in his own distinctive style, best described as neo-romantic. His work is heavily melodic, somewhat metric and mainly to be played with “feather-touch” – an expression he likes to use when it comes to the dynamics of his work.
