Edit Fazakas has been praised by critics for displaying all of the “ingredients necessary to a musician: wild temperament, spiritual depth and playfulness”...“she has the ability to completely metamorphose according to the style and character that her pieces require.”(2011 Bucharest concert review) A winner of more than 20 international competitions, Ms. Fazakas has toured across Europe (Austria, Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, the United Kingdom), as well as in Israel, Japan, Peru and the USA (New York, Massachusetts, Ohio, Virginia, Texas, Florida). She has been heard in many important concert venues, such as Genova's Palazzo Ducale, Salzburg's Wiener Saal, Harvard's Sanders Theater, Oberlin's historical Finney Chapel, the 2000 Hannover World Exhibition, to name but a few.
