By the age of 13 in 2014, concert pianist Raquel Fisk had already completed her first tour in China performing in cities including Hangzhou, Taicang, and Shanghai. By 16, she made her debut in Xalapa, Mexico as a soloist with Camille Saint-Saens’ demanding concerto #2 in G minor under the baton of Maestro Lan Franco. In addition to frequently playing new programs in the Boston area, Fisk performed to critical acclaim at the famous Bethlehem Bach Festival and in New York City’s Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall when she was 14.
In 2017, Fisk placed first at the NEPTA Ruth Davidson Competition as well as the MTNA and the Extravaganza competition. In 2018, Fisk performed in Xalapa, Mexico again, this time at the beautiful hall of ISMEV. In the same year, Fisk won first place in the MMTA Annual Bay State Contest and second place at the NEPTA Alice Hamlet Senior Scholarship Competition. After eminent pedagogue maestra Niva Fried groomed Fisk from the age of 10, Fisk was invited at 18 years old to continue her studies in Florence under one of Italy’s most celebrated concert pianists, maestro Andrea Lucchesini, who came from the class of legendary Maria Tipo.
From Florence a year later, Fisk migrated to Boston to be under the instruction of renowned Israeli concert pianist maestra Gila Goldstein from Tel-Aviv, who came from the studios of Nina Svetlanova and later Victor Derevianko, both disciples of the master Heinrich Neuhaus. She will now continue her studies in San Francisco with phenomenal concert pianist and professor Yoshi Nagai and Van Cliburn gold medalist Jon Nakamatsu.
