Fou is an extremely expressive performer; however, his wide-ranging emotion tends to hamper Schumann's music and create an unfocused performance. Schumann's Davidbündlerstänze, of course, are not really dances, but most of them still should have some feeling of dance. Fou chooses to concentrate on the philosophical nature of the pieces, so it is extremely hard to sense an association with dance in any of them

Fou Ts'ong was the first pianist from China to gain recognition in the west. He came out of nowhere and won the separate mazurka prize and honorable mention at the Chopin Competition in Warsaw in '55. He moved to London and has had a very productive career as a performer, recording artist, and teacher. Ts'ong never caught on in the States. But you should judge for yourself. Ts'ong is not just a good, obscure pianist, but a major talent. He may have had trouble gaining acceptance because he is at his best when he does away with tradition, as in the mazurkas.
Tue, Jul 27, 1999, 01:00. The music of Chopin has had a special place in the career of Fou Ts'ong. He took third prize at the 1955 Chopin Competition (behind Adam Harasiewicz and Vladimir Ashkenazy, and well ahead of the unplaced Tamas Vasary and Peter Frankl) and also took the special prize for playing mazurkas. Today, Fou plays Chopin like an old master. And, like many an old master, he feels a familiarity with the music which allows him to take liberties, not all of which sounded to the music's advantage at the NCH last Thursday.
