Pianist Victoria Fatu has been recognized internationally for performances of deep musical expression, charismatic temperament and sparkling technique. She has scored victories in numerous international competitions and has received multiple grants from major foundations. In 1998, she won First Prize at the AMSA World Piano Competition for Young Pianists in Cincinnati (USA), a prize that included a solo recital performance at New York City's Carnegie Hall. In 2001, she received grants from both the Vladimir Spivakov Foundation and the Aram Khachaturyan International Scholarship Foundation. She was awarded the Excellence Prize by the President of the Russian Federation in both 2001 and 2002, and in the latter year she also received the "Youth of the Century Award" as Young Classical Musician of the Year.

At the age of 10, she performed Mozart’s D-minor Concerto K.V. 466 in the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory, with Vladimir Fedoseev conducting the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra. She has appeared in solo and chamber music recitals in Germany, France, United Kingdom, the United States, Japan, China, Switzerland, Netherlands, Russia, Denmark, Kuwait, Poland, Sweden, Tunisia, Belarus, Ukraine, Estonia, Armenia and Romania. In addition to Spivakov and Fedoseev, she has collaborated with conductors such as Vladimir Ziva, Dmitri Liss, Valeriy Yarmoshkin and Murad Annamammedov, performing with the Moscow Virtuosi, the Russian National Orchestra, the Nizhny Novgorod Philharmonic and the Yaroslavl Philharmonic, among others.

Victoria Fatu has appeared on television and radio in numerous countries around the world, and has been featured in CD and video recordings. Her name has been added to the “Golden Book of the Russian Federation.”

Currently, she lives in Charleston, WV with her husband, Romanian violinist Cristian Fatu and daughters Vivienne and Sophie and son Mark.
