Now that Nobu has finished his Europe/Russia tour,  Nobu will stay in Japan from now through June, when he comes to the U.S.A to perform with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.  Nobu's next public performance is in Japan on May 7 (Saturday), when he plays Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 2 with Conductor: Vladimir Ashkenazy and the Miyazaki International Music Festival Orchestra -- sold out for month

What a fortnight this has been for Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii -- Please read about his various performances here
And, I have it on good authority that he also went to Berlin to do some recording sessions!  Bravos, Tsujii-san!

I just came upon this nice blog post dated April 19 by Mrs. Itsuko Tsujii, which I overlooked while in London.

"At London's historic 'Wigmore Hall,' Nobuyuki was allowed to hold a recital.
In the quiet dressing room, there are autographed photographs of pianists such as Rubinstein and Brendel.
The next concert is a concerto in Liverpool."
April 27 Nobu has returned home safely
Floral designer 假屋崎省吾 Kariya Sakishōgo wrote that he was on the same flight as Nobu from Frankfurt to Japan's Haneda Airport.  He wrote that Nobu spoke of his concerts in Russia and Germany, that their mothers were born in the same year and go to the same beauty salon.  "I feel a strange connection ... happy to run into you for the first time after a long time ... somehow my fatigue was blown away." So, Nobu is back home!

私たちはモスクワ経由で日本へそれぞれ帰ってきました。 サンクト・ペテルブル クで滞在していたホテルから自宅まで、通しで計算すると19時間ほどかかっています。
もちろん長い移動で身体はそれなりに疲れますが、近いと言えば近いか もしれませんね。でもやっぱり遠いか。
We just safely returned to Japan.
Tsujii-kun went on to Frankurt the next morning to finish a meeting, before returning to Japan.  We came back via Moscow.  By my calculation, it took 19 hours from the hotel to get home.
Of course, such a journey takes its toll on the body, even though time-wise it was not that long.  But the distance is still great.

March 30 A New Composition for Venice Renaissance Exhibition 2016
It seems that yesterday, before his
All-Chopin Recital, Nobu recorded a composition in Suntory Hall for an upcoming "Venice Renaissance Exhibition 2016."
ヴェネツィア・ルネサンス展 Venice Renaissance Exhibition 2016
The theme song has been determined ❗️ Today it was recorded at Suntory Hall. Theme song by Nobuyuki Tsujii, pianist, composer; and you can please hear the music coming soon on TV spots.
According to a tweet by Yura, the new composition is titled "The brilliance of Venice", and the exhibition of Venetian Renaissance Paintings from the Gallerie dell’Accademia will take place in the National Art center Tokyo July 13 - October 10. The exhibition is held in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Japan-Italy diplomatic relation.
Nobu composed background music for newly unveiled Marubeni Group (Japan)  corporate image animation -
The Marubeni Group has now expressed this corporate image as an animation utilizing the world view held by Studio Ghibli. Adopting the motif of what is said to be Japan's oldest manga, Choju Jinbutsu Giga (Scrolls of Frolicking Animals and Humans), the animation tells the story of mutual compassion and cooperation between a hare and a frog set against an old Japanese backdrop. This announcement relates to the first of three short animations, which follow the journey of these two travelers. The animation is a new Studio Ghibli production in which Mr. Katsuya Kondo, who worked as the supervising animator on Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea, produced the illustrations and composition. The accompanying music was composed and performed by leading Japanese pianist, Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii.
The Marubeni Group will use the animation throughout its global business regions and locations. As stated in the new mid-term management plan GC2018 announced in February 2016, the Marubeni Group aims to become a true global company that contributes to both regional economies and society. The Marubeni Group will continue its business activities to make someone in the world happy and to further enrich society. "Music was composed and performed by leading Japanese pianist, Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii."
Judging from web comments, this is a very popular animation.  Studio Ghibli has quite a following among anime fans.  And Nobu's music is praised.
