Lincoln Center Classical Series #2 :: Nobuyuki Tsujii
Japanese pianists Nobuyuki Tsujii (No-boo-you-key Tsu-gee-ee) - affectionately referred to as Nobu by his friends and fans - captured the hearts and imaginations of music lovers the world over with his gold medal-winning performances at the Thirteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2009. The resulting audience fervor has taken on a momentum that Time Magazine has coined "Nobu Fever." Acclaimed for his heartfelt and inspiring performances, Nobu is also noted for what the Chicago Tribune praised as "fearless technical assurance, accuracy, and musicality...suppleness of line and lyrical grace." Blind since birth, Nobu believes that there are no barriers in the field of music.
