Bay Chamber brings international award-winning pianist to Rockport
ROCKPORT - International award-winning Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii—affectionately known as "Nobu"—will perform at the Rockport Opera House on Sunday, March 17 at 2:30 p.m. Presented by Bay Chamber Concerts, the concert will feature a program of well-known virtuosic works by Debussy and Chopin.
Tsujii first 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." Much Debussy and Chopin, Tsujii creates new sound worlds through his own piano compositions. With expressive lyricism and astonishing technique, Nobu has performed sold-out concerts around the world, enchanting audiences in over 100 recital and concerto appearances in the last four years in North America, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. Catapulting to rock-star fame in Japan, his sound has been called "pure and crystal-clear" by classical music critic Yukiko Hagiya.
