On-Demand Video: WQXR Presents Pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii
Wednesday, January 15, 2014
The Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii gave a rare and exclusive performance in The Greene Space on January 14.
Blind since birth, the 24-year-old was a joint gold medal winner at the 2009 Van Cliburn Competition. This past July he debuted at the BBC Proms, giving a well-received performance with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. He made his New York recital debut in Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium in 2011, and is set to return for a performance of the Beethoven “Emperor” concerto with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra on January 25.
But first, he stopped by The Greene Space for an evening of conversation and music, playing works by Chopin, Liszt and his own compositions. The sold-out event was hosted by WQXR's Elliott Forrest.
