Lauretta Bloomer studied piano with Yonty Solomon at the Royal College of Music and later in Vienna at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst, with Georg Ebert and Heinz Medjimorec, where she developed her knowledge and love for the music of the Viennese Schools and specialised in chamber music. As a soloist, chamber musician and vocal accompanist, Bloomer has performed throughout Europe, toured the US and more recently appeared in Asia, South America and Australia with the Virtuoso Horn Duo.
Bloomer has been invited as a guest at many international music festivals and has a broad repertoire encompassing all periods and styles. She is equally at home playing on period instruments as performing contemporary music. Recent concerts and recordings include the complete songs of Clara Schumann, Pierrot Lunaire, Vaughan Williams’ Piano Quintet, Mendelssohn’s Piano Sextet and Piano Quartets as well as works by Brett Dean, Kerry Turner, Luciano Berio and George Benjamin. Bloomer is an experienced teacher. Besides her own teaching in Amsterdam, she has given lecture recitals in the UK and across Europe, and has given masterclasses in the US. She is currently on staff as pianist and coach at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.
