Uzhgorod pianist Anzhelika Fuks continues to impress with her creative imagination. The girl, who managed to conquer the world’s best venues, studied and taught abroad, in an instant dramatically changed her life and returned home to realize her long-standing dream. She used all the gained experience, all her multifaceted talent for the author’s project called "Visual music, connecting arts".
The idea of the project is a combination of different art forms. That is, the girl continues to spend hours practicing the instrument and to perform brilliantly on stage, but this is only the tip of the iceberg of Anzhelika Fuks’s restless creative nature. In fact, the range of her interests extend to literature, cinema, ballroom dance, architecture, art. Moreover, Anzhelika manages to combine these hobbies, not only in life but also in interesting performances. For the premiere of her project "Visual Music", the pianist has chosen works by Rachmaninoff, Chopin, Bach, Liszt and Ukrainian composer Viktor Kosenko accompanied by a slide show. The next step was the combination of music with sand animation: "Sound of the Sand" by Anzhelika Fuks and Yulia Mironova (the only sand artist in the region) caused a great interest among the local public. Anzhelika’s following work was "Magic of Art", in which the managed to match musical masterpieces by Chopin, Schubert, Debussy and Liszt with similar works of Monet, Renoir, Vrubel, Aivazovsky, Van Gogh and other artists.
But all the while Anzhelika Fuks was secretly harboring her most cherished dream – to make a film. Cinema is a long and serious passion of our compatriot. She was so focused on the idea to make her own movie that upon arrival home she managed to gather around her a team of associates – from photographers to professional actors.
