Sara Fuxon, 1932-1992


Sara Fuxon (1932-1992), born in Israel, was one of the country's most versatile concert pianists, with an exceptionally large repertoire including countless contemporary works. She studied with Leo Kerstenberg and Karol Klein in Israel, with Jacqueline Blancard in Switzerland and Peter Feuchtwanger in London.

Widely acclaimed as an innovator in the performance of Israeli music, Sara Fuxon premiered many works and regularly played at the annual Israeli Music Symposium. Appearing in Israel with all of the country's orchestras, in recitals and with chamber music groups, she gave concerts abroad as well, in Holland, Belgium and France, and recorded for several European radio stations.

Sara Fuxon was also very well known for her chamber music ensembles, among which "Duo Beer Sheva", with the Dutch-Israeli pianist Bart Berman. The Society of Israeli Music Composers organizes an annual concert in her honor, in which Israeli compositions are performed. In a tragic sequence of events, her husband, the honorable judge Izhak Heyman, died two years before her.
