Concert information
Promotional interview 
Nobu will also perform in Austria May 16-18. This is not Nobu's first visit to Mozart's birthplace, but it is extra wonderful that he will return to that country to perform with long-time mentor Yutaka Sado! See Nobuyuki Tsujii in Austria, May 2015

Nobu will be in California very soon. This promotional article, "Blind pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii to share his 'view' at Weill Hall ", previously appeared under a different headline. I am not very happy that the Sonoma publicity keeps labeling Nobu as "blind pianist" -- it seems people there (not far from Silicon Valley, Stanford, Berkeley, etc.) should be more enlightened.

Nobu is not the only VIP from Japan in the U.S. this week.
Japan's Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is in the U.S for a week-long visit and plans to visit Silicon Valley later this week. It's probably just a coincidence, but ... I do wonder if there is a chance that his path may cross that of Nobu, who will be in Sonoma Tuesday through Friday -- Sonoma is about an hour's drive from Silicon Valley. ^_^

This 15-second CM (commercial) was uploaded by テレビ金沢 TV Kanazawa to promote Nobu's August Japan tour (original compositions and "Rhapsody in Blue")
April 25
Our friends in Japan may want to catch this 5-minute segment of Asahi-TV's program "For Another Person's Hero", featuring Nobu's long-time mentor Yutaka Sado's thoughts about the blossoming of Nobu's talent. This probably has to do with their upcoming performances in Austria, which most likely will be filmed for another TV special in Japan. ^_^

BBC Proms​ announced its 2015 program
yesterday.  Sadly, neither the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic nor Nobu is on the program, although plenty of pianists are.  Let's keep our hope up for future years.
