For her thoughtful and imaginative playing style Yui Fushiki has established a reputation as a fine young concert pianist. She has had notable success at many international competitions, winning third prize at the Takamatsu competition 2018. She was previously awarded first prize at both the Rocchetta and Himes competitions, was a prize winner at the Maria Canals competition in Spain, and was a semi-finalist at the Busoni competition in 2017.
Born in Hokkaido, Japan, she was given her first piano lesson at the age of four. She went on to study at Tokyo University of Arts (Geidai) under Prof. Susumu Aoyagi and graduated with the extra honour of the ‘Ariadne Musica’ and ‘Doseikai’ prizes, given only to the most outstanding students. In 2013 she moved to Berlin to study under Prof. Pascal Devoyon and Rikako Murata at Berlin University of Arts and is currently finishing her Konzertexamen course under Prof. Björn Lehmann.
Yui gave her first solo recital at the age of 14 and she has performed at many festivals and concert venues worldwide. These include the Chopin Festival at Kawai Omotesando in Tokyo, Instrumentenmuseum Berlin, the Japanese embassy in Berlin. She has appeared as concerto soloist with Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, Geidai Philharmonic Orchestra and Seto Philharmonic Orchestra.
Aside from her piano studies, Yui has always had a strong interest in composing. She took lessons in composition and music theory at the Yamaha academy, and her early “Sonatina” was released as a commercial C.D. She also enjoys performing her own music within her concert programmes.
