Biography

Tomoharu Ushida was born in Iwaki City, Fukushima Prefecture, in 1999. Soon after his birth, his family moved to Shanghai, where his father was transferred for work. It was there that Tomoharu began his piano studies.

In 2005, at the age of five, he won 1st Prize at a piano competition for children in Shanhai. He won 1st Prize in the Chopin International Piano Competition in Asia for five consecutive years from 2008 to 2012 (when he was 8 to 12 years old).

In 2012, at the age of 12, Tomoharu won 1st Prize in the 16th Hamamatsu International Piano Academy Competition (becoming the youngest winner in its history). In the same year, he was the youngest-ever Japanese pianist to release a debut CD on the Universal Music label. Since then he has released numerous CDs including Memories (2012), Liszt & Chopin (2013), Traumerei (2014), Liebesfreud (2015/Record Geijutsu Special Selection), and Pictures at an Exhibition (2016/Record Geijutsu Special Selection).
In addition to performing recitals in many locations, Tomoharu Ushida has performed as a soloist on the Japan tours of Wiener KammerOrchester conducted by Stefan Vladar (2014), Russian National Orchestra led by Mikhail Pletnev (2015 and 2018), Hungarian National Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Ken-ichiro Kobayashi (2016), and The Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra led by Jacek Kaspszyk (2018).
