Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii - affectionately known as “Nobu” - captured the hearts and imaginations of music lovers throughout the world with his gold medal–winning performances at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2009. Blind since birth, Nobu believes that “there are no barriers in the field of music.”
He is acclaimed for his heartfelt and inspiring performances, enchanting audiences with his expressive lyricism and astonishing technique. He has performed sold-out concerts around the world and has catapulted to rock-star fame in Japan. Since 2009, Nobu has made over 100 recital and concerto appearances in North America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
He will perform a sumptuous program of well-known virtuosic works by two of the giants of pianism, Debussy and Chopin, each of whom created new sound worlds through their much-loved piano compositions.
