Dart Music Festival – Classical Concerts No. 1: Reiko Fujisawa

We’re very proud to present International Concert Pianist REIKO FUJISAWA – and we are, quite frankly, blown away by this lady.

There are many brilliant pianists around, but few are able to fuse the sensibilities of a musician raised in the Far East who trained in the West.

Reiko-Fujisawa 3 2016Reiko Fujisawa took up the piano at the age of three.

It was an unusual direction for the traditional family milieu in which she grew up in the most southerly of Japan’s four main islands: her parents played traditional Japanese instruments but were keen for Reiko to expand her musical horizons.

Reiko was born and brought up in Japan and is now based in the UK, and she released her acclaimed debut CD in 2012.

She is a frequent performer in the UK and overseas, and as well as performing as a soloist, Reiko is the member of three outstanding music groups, each performing very different and distinct repertoire.
