Since she was stateless, she had studied piano in Berlin as a refugee.
In Europe, many famous pianists admired her talent but she had a very hight fever and lost her hearing just before a recital that was supported by Leonard Bernstein.
It made her determine to terminate her career as a professional pianist once. She still cannot hear with the right ear at all, 40 % of hearing with her left ear was back.

Fuzjko’s debut CD, La Campanella, was released on August 25, 1999 and sold over two million copies, an unusual phenomenon in the classical music scene. As of today, fifteen CDs have been released, all of which have sold a remarkable number of copies. Four of her CDs have received the Classical Album of the Year award at the Japan Gold Disc Awards, a feat never before accomplished.

Also, she is a great humanitarian. She had donated all her CD sales to the 9.11 victims for one year, and she supports victims of the Kobe earthquake, Afghan refugees and UNICEF. Moreover, her humanitarian passion can be found in the fact that she continues to support and fight for animal rights, starting with providing care and shelter for cats and dogs. She has also been a vegetarian for more than 22 years.

In this video, she visited underprivileged children.
