♪ Nobu at European summer festivals, August 5 & 8
Just like that, Nobu's European summer fling is over. Two festivals in a week, on August 5 & 8 respectively. It was "Kulturufer Friedrichshafen" in Germany on August 5 (photo left), and the Biarritz Piano Festival in France on August 8. "An ambitious program of Chopin, Debussy, Ravel, Liszt, Gerswhin and Kapustin...The performance was extraordinary and the audience conquered!" and all done amid a heatwave in Europe.  
Congratulations to Tsujii-san on yet another great success!

♪August 14 "Even people like Mr. Tsujii must wait in line for a U.S. visa"
Reading this blog post gave my heart a pang.  It seems Nobu was seen waiting in line at the U.S. embassy for a visa -- likely for his September performances in U.S.
The blog post is dated August 14, probably soon after Nobu returned to Tokyo from France.
The blogger was at the embassy for a visa and happened to see Nobu there.

♪August 14 Seafood in Bordeaux
Mrs. Itsukos Tsujii posted two photos on Instagram of a seafood lunch that she and Nobu (and others) enjoyed while in France: "
ボルドーでのランチ🦐シーフードプレート ムール貝、オイスター、手長エビ、カニ🦀盛り沢山です
"Lunch at Bordeaux 🦐 Seafood Plate of Mussels, Oyster, Shrimp, Crab."
The photo shows Nobu and his mother seated behind a huge platter of seafood. Mrs. Tsujii is holding up a crab. Nobu is seated next to her and smiling happily.
♪ Jan 30 London recital
JAN30 2019 Queen Elizabeth Hall, London
Nobuyuki Tsujii: Satie, Debussy & Chopin (4 scherzos)
International Piano Series, Southbank Centre
I am personally looking forward to this performance on January 30 2019. I am just hoping that, given how hot this summer has been in London, I won't land there during frozen-pipe cold weather.
This concert is part of the prestigious International Piano Series, Southbank Centre in London, at the QueenElizabeth Hall right by the Thames.
I checked just now, and there are plenty of tickets available for the recital.
This recital program includes all 4 of Chopin's scherzos in the second half.
This page has a good write-up on the 4 scherzos => https://culture.pl/en/work/scherzos-fryderyk-chopin
And this page has soundtracks of all 4 => http://www.radiochopin.org/the-scherzoss
August 11 Fun time in France
Mrs. Itsukos Tsujii posted a batch of Instagrams time-marked at about 9PM France time => https://www.instagram.com/itsuko_tsujii/
It seems that after his triumphant performance at the Biarritz Piano Festival, Nobu, Mrs. Tsujii and manager Mr. Nick Asano stayed on in France and had some much-deserved fun touring some chateaus in France, joined by friends and business associates (including some from Liverpool Phil)😀
Please see all the photos of vineyards and Basque food at => https://www.instagram.com/itsuko_tsujii/
