Picture: Ts'ong, Fou

Shanghai (China), 1934. Fou Ts'ong was born in Shanghai in 1934. His father Fou Lei who was a famous philosopher and translator of French literature, provided the cultural background and interest in classical music. In 1953 Fou Ts'ong moved to Poland where he entered the class of Zbigniew Drzewicki. He received the Mazurka prize in the 5th International Chopin competition in Warsaw and concertised extensively in Eastern Europe. In 1959, he was invited to perform at the Royal Albert Hall in London under the baton of Carl Maria Guilini. This gave him the opportunity to stay in the West and make London his home. Fou Ts'ong has performed worldwide. He was able to return to China in 1979 after a 20 year absence due to political turmoil within his native country. Since then he has returned regularly to give performances and master classes every year. He also teaches at the International Foundation for Pianists in Como and has been on the jury of many competitions which include Leeds, Queen Elizabeth, Santander, Geneva, Dino Ciani, Minnesota, James Mottram. His recordings include works by Scarlatti, Bach, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Schumann, and Debussy which are issued by Meridian Records. Widely considered as the first Chinese musician to have established himself in the West, TIME magazine has described him as the greatest Chinese musician alive today.
