Born in England, of Viennese parents, he began to play the piano at a very early age, studying with Fanny Waterman. He made his concerto debut with the City of Birmingham Orchestra at the age of ten and his Royal Festival Hall debut at twelve, playing the Schumann Concerto with Sir Malcolm Sargent conducting. His success at the first Leeds International Piano Competition in 1963, where he won first prize at the age of 17, led to the start of a career which has taken him all over the world, appearing with such conductors as Barbirolli, Boulez, Giulini, Gergiev, Haitink, Leinsdorf, Masur, Previn, Sanderling and Sawallisch. He has toured in Japan with the BBC Symphony, and in Europe with the Philharmonia, Royal Philharmonic, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and English Chamber Orchestras.

Extractions: MICHAEL ROLL REVIEWS Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra - October 2004 Mike Marsh, Bournemouth Echo West Australian Symphony Orchestra/Tuomas Ollila - March 2003 "This was a performance of all-embracing splendour. Deeply probing in its more expressive episodes and scintillating in virtuosic passages, Roll's reading took us into rarefied territory. The finale was unforgettably fine. In one of Beethoven's most successful essays in musical humour, Roll evoked its outbursts of backslapping joviality and peekaboo insouciance with the kind of playfulness that brought to mind Zequinha Abreu's 1943 piano hit Tico-Tico. And the lyricism with which he clothed the central largo was musicality of the highest order. Roll's accounts of Beethoven's 1st and 3rd concertos have been so exceptionally fine that WASO might consider mounting the complete cycle of Beethoven's piano concertos with him as soloist - it would be a musical coup for the city." "After his WASO performances, Roll followed up with a piano recital at the Octagon of works by Beethoven. His account of the Scherzo from the Sonata in C from opus 2 was deeply impressive, the Trio section surging with rugged power. In its more reflective moments, Roll played in gently lyrical fashion. His passionate account of Schumann's colossal Fantasy ended a memorable recital from a prince of the piano." Neville Cohn, The West Australian

Extractions: Book Details Michaelbloomfield.com Photo Gallery Discography Michael Bloomfield Biography by Jan Mark Wolkin Michael Bernard Bloomfield was born July 28, 1943, in Chicago, Illinois. An indifferent student and self-described social outcast, Bloomfield immersed himself in the multi-cultural music world that existed in Chicago in the 1950s. He got his first guitar at age 13. Initially attracted to the roots-rock sound of Elvis Presley and Scotty Moore, Bloomfield soon discovered the electrified big-city blues music indigenous to Chicago. At the age of 14 the exuberant guitar wunderkind began to visit the blues clubs on Chicago's South Side with friend Roy Ruby in search of his new heroes: players such as Muddy Waters, Otis Spann, Howling Wolf, and Magic Sam. Not content with viewing the scene from the audience, Bloomfield was known to leap onto the stage, asking if he could sit in as he simultaneously plugged in his guitar and began playing riffs. Bloomfield was quickly accepted on the South Side, as much for his ability as for the audiences' appreciation of the novelty of seeing a young white player in a part of town where few whites were seen. Bloomfield soon discovered a group of like-minded outcasts. Young white players such as Paul Butterfield, Nick Gravenites, Charlie Musselwhite, and Elvin Bishop were also establishing themselves as fans who could hold their own with established bluesmen, many of whom were old enough to be their fathers.
