Richard Fu
Shanghai-born Richard Fu is currently studying collaborative piano at Juilliard, having previously attended Oxford University, the Royal College of Music (RCM), and Dartmouth College. Though he had wanted to become a lawyer growing up and began as a political science major at Dartmouth, Richard fell in love with classical music while studying abroad in Vienna and changed focus to music midway. At Dartmouth, Richard won the Mark L. Lebowitz 1977 Memorial Prize for outstanding undergraduate music student, Macdonald-Smith Prize for high achievement in musical performances, and the Gerald A. Tracy Memorial Scholarship Piano Competition. Other prizes include the Los Angeles International Liszt Competition and RCM’s Kendall Taylor Beethoven Competition. Richard has performed concertos with the Oxford University Philharmonia, Dartmouth Symphony Orchestra, Dartmouth Chamber Orchestra, and the Basement Orchestra. An avid chamber musician, he has accompanied the masterclasses of Maxim Vengerov and Roderick Williams, and received coaching from Menahem Pressler and Roger Vignoles. Richard co-found Béla Ensemble, a clarinet-violin-piano ensemble focusing on contemporary music. He performed Stravinsky’s Septet as part of RCM’s collaboration with the Philharmonia Orchestra in the Stravinsky: Myths & Rituals Festival, as well as Steve Reich’s Double Sextet during the composer’s residency at the RCM. Recent performances include his debut at Carnegie Hall (Weill Recital Hall), and recitals in the Sheldonian Theatre, Holywell Music Room, Victoria & Albert Museum, St. John’s Smith Square, Regents Hall, Roman Music Festival, Oxford Lieder Festival, and on tour in cities across China.

Richard’s most important teachers and mentors include Victor Rosenbaum, Andrew Ball, Sally Pinkas, Steve Swayne, and Hong Teng. During the summers, Richard enjoys attending music festivals through which he has learned from pianists such as Dimitri Alexeev, Paul Badura-Skoda, Boris Berman, Christopher Elton, Robert McDonald, and Peter Serkin. This past summer, Richard was a fellow at Music Academy of the West, where he met his current teacher Jonathan Feldman and also played the celeste in a concert conducted by Alan Gilbert featuring Renée Fleming.
