Chinese pianist Zijun Xu, defined by Vladimir Ashkenazy as “an artist who has rich inner emotion and a great ability in control”, was the first Chinese pianist to be awarded the first prize at the Mark Ray International Piano Competition in 2014. In 2020 he successfully received the Doctoral Artist Diploma degree from the Royal College of Music. After his studies in Europe, he toured China’s Poly Theatres with his concert series “The Golden Moment 8 Piano Solo” receiving outstandingly positive feedbacks. He is currently professor of piano at Shenyang Conservatory of Music.

As a professional pianist, my happiness, sadness and all other emotions should be reflected through my piano. It is a great honour for me to have the Fazioli piano as my new confidant. Fazioli’s exquisite timbres and sensitive keyboard feedback permeate through every single touch, which is fascinating. With the world-class craftsmanship and pure European pedigree, Fazioli pianos is always my choice.
