Biography Repertoire list Images



Fou Ts'ong was born in Shanghai and was the first Chinese pianist to be a prizewinner at the Chopin competition in 1953.
This year marks Fou Ts'ong's seventieth birthday. As a veteran of the keyboard,his enthusiasm and dedication to music remains undimmed. This year he has returned to his native Shanghai to give his expertise to students at the conservatory on Chopin, Mozart Concertis, and Debussy in a series of master classes over a period of two months. He continues to give classes at the International Foundation for young pianists at Como, Italy. He has performed in London, Taiwan, HongKong and Beppu Festival in Japan. Meridian Records have released his recordings of Chopin and Mozart concerti as well as other solo piano recordings. Amidst the great number of growing whizz kids springing up from China, Fou Ts'ong remains in spiritual terms true to his art and cultural root. His strength of conviction and personal voice in his music making are individual and unconventional. His depth and ability to evoke real emotional meaning in whatever he plays made TIME magazine call him the greatest Chinese musician alive today. Hermann Hesse called him the only true performer of Chopin.
