Hailed by famous German music critic Harald Eggebrecht for playing "with superior awareness of form, structure, and sound", Chinese-German violinist Leonard Fu’s love for music began at an early age when his two older sisters were practicing the violin and the piano and Fu started imitating the melodies on the piano by ear. Despite being non-musicians themselves his parents saw his potential and enabled his first piano lesson at age four and his first violin lesson at age seven which later became his main instrument.

Since then, Fu has performed on three different continents in several countries, amongst them Germany, China, Russia, the United States, Italy, and Spain. He is an active soloist and chamber musician, and has played concerts with major orchestras such as the Bremer Kammerphilharmonie and the Hamburger Symphoniker under the direction of Alexander Shelley and Dietger Holm amongst others. Chamber partners have been Manuel Fischer-Dieskau, Nimrod Guez, Gregor Horsch, Peijun Xu, Tanja Becker-Bender, etc.
