Haruka Fujii

Multi-percussionist Haruka Fujii has become one of the most prominent solo percussionists and marimbists of her generation. She has won international acclaim for her interpretations of contemporary music, having performed premieres of works from composers including Franghis Ali-Zadeh, Akira Miyoshi, and Maki Ishii. She has frequently collaborated with composer Tan Dun, performing his Water Percussion Concerto, Paper Percussion Concerto, Earth Concerto, and and opera Tea in major venues across the world.

Ms. Fujii's passion for introducing audiences to new percussion music has put her on stage with diverse orchestras and ensembles. She has appeared as a soloist with the Munich Philharmonic, Netherlands Chamber Orchestra, Metropolitan Opera, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Nationale de Lyon, Hong Kong Sinfonietta, and the NHK Symphony Orchestra. She is a member of Flexible Music and the Line C3 Percussion Group, two New York based ensembles which actively commission new compositions from young composers. Her world premiere recordings can be found on the Kosei, ALM Records, and Deutsche Grammophon labels. In addition to her career as a performing artist Ms. Fujii enjoys teaching, and has been a guest instructor and competition judge at several percussion festivals.

Born in Saitama, Japan, Ms. Fujii began her musical studies on the piano at the age of three. Influenced by her mother, noted marimbist Mutsuko Fujii, she developed interest in percussion instruments. She studied music at the Tokyo National University, the Juilliard School (where she was recipient of the Avedis Zildijian Scholarship Award), and the Mannes College of Music. She currently resides in Brooklyn, New York. Ms. Fujii proudly endorses Korogi Marimbas.
