Mitsuko Uchida has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to aiding the development of young musicians and is a trustee of the Borletti-Buitoni Trust. She is co-director, with Richard Goode, of the Marlboro Music Festival. In 2009, she was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Last year, she was awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society’s Gold Medal, one of classical music’s highest honors.
Uchida was born in Atami, near Tokyo and moved to Vienna when she was twelve years old. She studied with Richard Hauser at the Vienna Academy of Music, and later with Wilhelm Kempff and Stefan Askenase. She gave her first Viennese recital at the Vienna Musikverein at the age of only fourteen. In 1969 she won first prize at the Beethoven Competition in Vienna, in 1970 the second prize at the International Frédéric Chopin Piano Competition, and in 1975 the second prize at the Leeds Piano Competition.
Performing with the world’s finest orchestras and musicians, Uchida has been the focus of a Carnegie Hall Perspectives series entitled, “Mitsuko Uchida: Vienna Revisited.” She has also been artist-in-residence at the Cleveland Orchestra, the Vienna Konzerthaus, and with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.
