Nobu should be on his way home to Tokyo.
Meanwhile, there is a bit of news involving the Tokyo university that he graduated from.
Nobu is mentioned in this article in Japan Times
"Bach score owned by Tokyo music college may fetch $3 million at auction" ... "The seller is Ueno Gakuen, "a private conservatory established in 1958. Among its graduates are visually impaired pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii, who shot to fame after winning the gold medal at the 13th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in Fort Worth, Texas, in 2009."
In a post on the "Slipped Disc" classical-music tabloid blog, it is speculated (unsubstantiated) that the sale comes about because "Tokyo’s Ueno Gakuen conservatory ... appears to have fallen on hard times."
Ueno Gakuen 上野学園, Nobu's alma mater, is selling a rare Bach manuscript

One more zany photo from Orpheus Chamber Orchestra oboist and Broadway conductor Ikuma Keisuke, at the Naumburg Orchestral Concerts - Since 1905. Once again, Nobu is in the background ;-).

NaumburgConcert tweeted
Honoring #NobuyukiTsujii at the Japanese Consulate who will be performing with @NaumburgConcert and @Orpheusnyc!
This brings back memories.  I was in that room in 2014, when the esteemed Consul hosted a reception for Nobu when he was there to perform with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at the Carnegie Hall. The Japanese Consulate is located not far from the Central Park, where Nobu will perform tomorrow evening.

辻井伸行のベルリン・セッション録音最新盤は、「プレミアム・リサイタル」シリーズでとりあげ、国内外で喝采を博した超本格派の2作品。ピアノ・ソナタ ロ短調は、"ピアノの神"リストの唯一のソナタで、技巧的にも音楽的にもきわめて複雑・高度にして深遠なもの。夜のガスパールは、ラヴェルが「歴史上最も 難しいピアノ曲を書こう」と意気込んで作曲したもの。いずれも、技術面のみならず音楽表現力においてピアニストの実力が最高度に求められる。辻井伸行が世 界で高く評価されるゆえんが、ここに明らかになります。
Nobuyuki Tsujii's  Berlin session recording of recent works performed in his "premium Recital" series, two classical standards that have gained acclaims at home and abroad. Piano Sonata in B minor is the only sonata of Franz Liszt, the "God of the piano,"  profoundly artful and musically highly complex.  "Gaspard of the night" was composed by Maurice Ravel, who wrote excitedly, "I want to write the most difficult piano music in history."  Both works require the pianist with the  highest degree in  musical expressive power, and not just technical proficiency. Here it becomes clear why Nobuyuki Tsujii is highly regarded in the world.
