April 20 This amusing blog post is by a British mother who lives in Japan, and -- our Japanese friends please excuse this -- it mentions music in Japan and the toy piano craze there that may have something to do with Nobu.

... some of our friends bought us this Kawai toy piano [video link] as a birthday present for our eldest. It’s not cheap as you can see, but highly popular. It may have something to do with the story that Nobuyuki Tsujii, the piano genius, had played one when he was a two year old. [video link]  As he grew up to be this good [video link], many parents went out and bought a Kawai piano (in fact, it became a selling point) in the hope that some magic lay within its plinky-plonky-planky notes.
There didn’t. Or at least in ours. Most of the time, we were subjected to noises like this [video link] ...
April 20 川のせせらぎ"Whisper of the River
In this blog post, http://pnet.kawai.jp/616486/topics/67072/ , the blogger wrote that yesterday, on "Sunlight Day" in a gallery overlooking a river in Fukushima, (s)he performed Nobu's composition 川のせせらぎ"Whisper of the River" written to express his love for his father after the two took a walk together when Nobu was in his teens. " 'Whisper of the River' captures the innocent and guileless mind of Mr. Tsujii, who has never seen a river."

April 17 A big thanks to Performance Today (U.S. radio program)
In 2013, Nobu gave a thrilling performance at the University of Georgia Arts Center, U.S.A. that was recorded. The radio program Performance Today has several times aired segments of that performance. It did so again on Friday 4/17, in recognition of Nobu's upcoming U.S. visit. Thank you, Performance Today and UGA Performing Arts Center!! Listen here  http://www.yourclassical.org/programs/performance-today/episodes; the program can be listened to on podcast (that is, on demand).  A big thanks to host Mr. Fred Child (emcee for the Cliburn Piano Competitions) for his excellent introduction to the composition "Rigoletto Paraphrase" by Liszt and to Nobu, and for mentioning Nobu's upcoming North America Tour.

♪  April 17 wisdom of Nobu's mother, Mr.s Itsuko Tsujii
rs. Itsuko Tsujii,
Nobu's mother, has been on radio lately. This twitter quotes her 
/辻井 いつ子(息子・辻井伸行)
The world of the "sightless"is not a world of darkness that we have in mind.
His is a world that can be enriched more and more, I decided.
/ Tsujii Nobuyuki (son Nobuyuki Tsujii)
I have the utmost admiration for Nobu's parents.

♪  April 17 promotion video for November performances with the Munich Phil and Valery Gergiev
This video was posted yesterday by Japan's ticket outlet ePlus to promote Nobu's performances with Valery Gergiev in November. I cannot understand what is said either, but I believe Nobu was asked (among other things) about his past performances with Gergiev and about Beethoven as a composer. This video is probably taped very recently, and it is good to see that Nobu is in good health.
