    Freddy Kemf Pianist

    Does any one know if Freddy Kemf is related to Wilhelm Kemff. A search brings up no definite results that I can find, some say no and some say Grandfather ??

    I don't think so. Wilhelm's surname is Kempff (with'p' and 'ff').
    Freddy's is Kempf ('p' and 'f'). Although he lives in Germany, now, and his father is German, his mother is Japanese according to the biographies I've read. None of them makes any reference to a relationship to Wilhelm Kempff.

    Thanks for you post rovikered and excuse my clumsy spelling, I realise the facts about Freddy's Mother and Father but people do change their names for various reasons I am sure you will understand what I am getting at, I agree with you in suspecting that they were not related as in 'Grandson' but I can't find a definitive answer on the net these are old links that tackle that question the first from Piano world http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbt...te_id/1#import
