Belgian pianist Fem Devos finished her bachelor’s degree in the conservatorium of Ghent in 2016 with Vitaly Samoshko. She continued her studies in Maastricht with Katia Veekmans, where she spent three years improving all aspects of piano playing, discovering new repertoire and developing as a performer. By taking this step in her career, many opportunities have opened up for her. She feels that this decision has expanded her view on life and in the musical world and confirmed once more her love for music and chamber music in particular.
She is currently finishing her final year of the master’s degree in classical piano in Maastricht, after obtaining her bachelor’s degree there in 2017 with the highest possible mark.
Besides being the pianist of Chekhov trio, Fem performs regularly as solo piano repertoire. She has played on stages in Maastricht, Heerlen, Brussels, Liège, Ghent, Kortrijk, Paris, amongst others. In February 2019, Fem performed the 5th piano concerto by Camille Saint-Saëns with the University Orchestra of Maastricht.
Fem is also active in other chamber music ensembles. She is part of Duo Fandango, with Scottish pianist Anna Michels and of the duo with Serbian mezzo-soprano Teodora Drozdik-Popović.
As a passionate musician, Fem is always looking for new inspiration. She developed herself during additional masterclasses on solo piano with Julien Libeer, Ellen Corver, Valentina Berman, Enrico Pace, Daniel Blumenthal, Philippe Entremont, Marie-Noëlle Damien and on chamber music with Rusquartet, Osiris Trio, Nemtsov Duo and Sigiswald Kuijken, amongst others.
