TV appearance on 『さんまのまんま』 the "Manma's Mackerel Pike" show has been announced

さんま、女子アナとの飲み会を計画!?「彼女がほしい」辻井伸行のため
Manma Planning a Drinking party with his Girl Ana!? "She wants" Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii
ピアニストで作曲家の辻井伸行(27)が、9月3日に放送される関西テレビ・フジテレビ系トーク番組『さんまのまんま』(関西テレビ13:56~14:25/フジテレビ14:00~14:30)に初出演する。
Pianist-composer Nobuyuki Tsujii (27), will appear on Kansai Fuji Television talk show "Manma's Mackerel Pike" ,to be broadcast on September 3.(Kansai TV 13:56 to 14:25 / Fuji TV 2:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.)
This is his first appearance.


On the show, Nobu is wearing the same outfit as he appeared on the PIANIST tour last month -- I suspect the show was filmed after the last performance on the tour, in Osaka.
This is apparently a very popular program. judging from the great number of tweets and postings. 
I have worked up a translation of one of the articles about the show, which is apparently a lighthearted show. According to the write-up, Nobu was asked to demonstrate his absolute pitch by identifying the notes generated when the host tap on a glass, and he was asked about his dating technique (much to Nobu's embarrassment). In the end, Nobu played an up-tempo impromptu of his impression of the host.

In her latest blog post, Mrs. Tsujoo wrote:
前回、伸行は好きな音楽家について話してくれました ...

プライベートについていろいろ聞いていきます
The last time, Nobuyuki told us about his favorite musicians ...
The next time, his will tell us about his hobbies and things about  his private life.
The August 14 broadcast can be heard below,.  A Nobu fan wrote:
"Nobu talks about his father and Mr. and Mrs. Kawakami. Nobu's voice sounds like he was having fun. The announcer says that Nobu is smiling all the time.
About Nobu's father : Nobu respects his father because he works hard as a Ob-Gyn doctor. He was strict when Nobu was a child. Now Nobu understands that he was worried about Nobu. About the Cliburn Competition, he [the father] was not able to see on the Internet the moment that Nobu won the Gold medal of of [network access overload]. Nobu composed "Whisper of the river" after Nobu took a walk along the river with his father.
About Mr. and Mrs. Kawakami [Nobu's long time piano teacher and his wife are both pianists]: (Itsuko explains that Mr. K decided to make a tape recording of music score for Nobu because it takes three weeks to make a braille music score.) Nobu learned the joy of music from them. Nobu said he really appreciates their support."
The theme music that Nobu composed for the show can be heard in the background at the end, after the "Ode of Joy" commercial.

♪ August 26 Nobuyuki Tsujii & Ayaka Hirahara interview  2012 
I want to share this 2012 TV appearance of Nobu being interviewed by Japan's popular singer Ayaka Hirahara. These two are long-time friends, and they co-performed in the "Concert of Hope" held in Nagasake about this time last year. In this moving show, Nobu speaks freely in Japanese that I can't understand, but there is a transcript of the dialog, as well as a description of the show - see http://mlliu2006.blogspot.com/…/my-time-to-shine-tbs-septem…
The show was filmed near Nobu's 24-th birthday (coming again soon), and there is an amusing scene of Ms. Hirahara handing a gift to an embarrassed Nobu.
♪ August 26  Nobu's alma mater Tokyo Ueno Gakuen in the news again
In this follow-up article about the ongoing management dispute at the 音楽学校「上野学園大」Tokyo Ueno Gakuen Conservatory, Nobu is mentioned once again:

Among others, Ueno Gakuen has produced  Nobuyuki Tsujii (who  is known as the "blind pianist").
[Sorry, Linda, that's how the article put it --  the Japan media is the worst offender in labeling Nobu as  盲目のピアニスト"the blind pianist"]

It was not crowded. I was able to look comfortably. Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii's "Brilliance of Venice" is No. 80 on the audio guide no. 80, and it is very nice.
I listened to it many times at the venue.
