Fuzjko Hemming Piano Solo Concert 2017 in NYC

May 19th at 7pm

Tickets $35


Born in Berlin, Fuzjko Hemming  had  early creative influence from  her father, who was a Swedish  architect and  painter, and  her  mother, a Japanese pianist. At a very  young  age, Fuzjko started practicing piano with  her  mother consistently, and,  by the  age of ten, she began  working  with  Leonid  Kreutzer, a highly  influential piano teacher. In recognizing Fuzjko's  great   potential, Kreutzer stated  she  would  be  "an  internationally-acclaimed pianist" even  at such  an early stage. However, despite her great  potential, Fuzjko faced  a major  struggle in her  youth: she lost her  hearing, first in her  right  ear  then her left. As a result, Fuzjko stopped playing for  a number of years  before returning to performance. Now, in her left ear, she can hear  at about forty  percent.As a young  adult, Fuzjko  would  prove  Kreutzer's predictions true as she  overcame all obstacles  and   excelled   in  university  and   performance: she   graduated  from   Tokyo University  of  the   Arts   receiving  multiple  Japanese  1V   and   Radio   awards  before becoming the  top  selected student for  Berlin  University of the  Arts  and  moving  on  to work  with   Paul  Badura-Skoda  in  Vienna.  In  1999, Fuzjko  released  her  first   album "Miraculous La  Campanella," which  sold   over   two  million   copies. Since  that   debut release, Fuzjko  has  won  the  Japan Gold  Disc Award  and  Album  of  the  Year Award  a record four  times - no other artist has been  able to accomplish this.Fuzjko  has  performed in  numerous solo  recitals all over  the  world  collaborating with international  orchestras  such   as  the   Moscow  Philharmonic  Orchestra,  Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and   many others. Several   international classical authorities such   as  Bruno  Maderna, Leonard   Bernstein, Cherkausky, and   N. Magaloff  have  also recognized her,  for  artistic contributions. Currently, she  is collaborating with  NHK Symphony Orchestra, Ukraine  Symphony Orchestra, Moskovskaya  Symphony Orchestra, and  Praha  Radio Symphony.In  2013,  Fuzjko's  latest  CD was voted  First  place  by  listeners of Spain's largest classic radio  program "Catalunya Radio".From September to  November, 2014,  she  held  11 concerts in nine  European countries,Fuzjko is extremely well renowned throughout the  world   and   receives  standing ovations in various locations.In   2015,    Fuzjko has co-starred  with the Ukraine        Philharmonic,      Prague        RadioSymphony and  the  NHK Symphony Orchestra.In   2016,   she   is  scheduled  to   co-star  with Sukuwafiru,     Monte Carlo  Philharmonic Orchestra and  Israel Philharmonic. Appreciated  by   both   her   peers   and community, Fuzjko  passionately pursues both artistic and  compassionate causes: she  has dedicated   many    concerts   solely,    for the humane treatment of animals. To this  note,  in Germany there  is  a  humane society  named after   Fuzjko  in  honor  of  her lifelong commitment to animal welfare.
