Nobuyuki Tsujii


Japanese pianist and composer Nobuyuki Tsujii will perform a program of classical works by DeBussy and Chopin. Blind since birth, 25-year-old Tsujii has had an illustrious career, having won the Gold Metal at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition at age 21 and made his debut at Carnegie Hall at age 23.
