"The wind on the battle field."
September 25 Nobuyuki Tsujii appeared on FujiTV's "Music Fair" program "RyokoMoriyama 55th Anniversary Special" Yura-san shared a clip of Nobu accompanying the celebrated singer on a song "Satoukibi field" and this description: "Ryoko Moriyama: 'Mr. Tsujii, I asked you to join us with your favorite Mr. Tsujii." Nobuyuki Tsujii: 'I'm honored. I would like to play with you as much as possible. ' Zawawa [the sound you here Nobu play] is the sound of the wind that repeatedly flows through the sugar cane fields in summer. The sad song of the Battle of Okinawa in World War II. I am sorry." twitter.com/icoyuraco/status/1441710454112337931

Sept 21 https://twitter.com/lotus_a_knot/status/1440098615247065097 This tweet mentions an article about Nobuyuki Tsujii that appeared in Monday's Tokyo News. " 'The performance is always one-time only. It's Nobuyuki Tsujii's words from this mornings message. Time goes by. Don't wait." That really struck a chord in me. How was I so lucky to have been at so many of Nobu's concerts! And how I took them for granted, thinking there would always be another performance to enjoy. I know better now. And I will not wait when the opportunities come again. More at "The performance is always one-time only"

Free lakeside picnic concert
September 25 Nobuyuki Tsujii, pianist in residence, has been kept busy at the Mt. Fuji Piano Festival! This twitter was at a lakeside free concert at lunch time https://twitter.com/kanjuku_ba7/status/1441738928734629890 "It was a really luxurious time to listen to Nobuyuki Tsujii's performance live and for free at Lake Kawaguchiko. Debussy's moonlight was so beautiful ...It was a really delicate sound." After that concert, Nobu went on to attend the concert of Makoto Ozone, and also a rehearsal with the orchestra. A hard day's work! Photo with the tweet shows Nobu bowing to the audience seated on the lawn -- he is wearing a festival Tee shirt and maybe jeans.
