Born in 1955 in Osaka, Shin-ichi Fukuda started playing the classical guitar at the age of eleven under Tatsuya Saitoh (1942–2006). In 1977 he moved to Paris and continued his musical training at the Ecole Normale de la Musique under Alberto Ponce, followed by study at the Accademia Chigiana in Siena under Oscar Ghiglia. After receiving the highest diplomas in Paris and Siena, Fukuda was awarded many important competition prizes, including first prize at the 23rd Paris International Guitar Competition, organised by Radio France. Since then, for more than thirty years, Fukuda has pursued a brilliant concert career as a guitarist, performing extensively in solo recitals, concertos with orchestra, and chamber music, in major cities around the world. Fukuda is also a highly gifted and enthusiastic teacher and has trained many pupils who have gone on to gain the highest honours including the young Japanese guitarists Kaori Muraji, Daisuke Suzuki, and Yasuji Ohagi, among others. He is a guest professor of Shanghai Conservatory (China), Osaka College of Music (Japan) and Hiroshima Elizabeth University of Music (Japan). Leo Brouwer dedicated his Concerto da Requiem – In memoriam Takemitsu II, for guitar and orchestra to Fukuda who was honoured with the Art Encouragement Prize of Music 2011 by the Japanese government as a musician of the highest distinction.
