◆Nobu will performs Chopin/Liszt recital (mostly Liszt) at the Louvre (yes, the one in Paris) at 12:30 on April 17. This will be Nobu's debut recital in France. I believe this is a free concert. The performances at the Louvre's auditorium (located under the pyramid) are considered prestigious (see here) and we may get to see it on Europe's medici TV - I am investigating!
NEW I heard from France Musique radio that the concert will be broadcast on France Musique radio on May 3 at 12:00 in the context of Young Generation Performers Concerts produced and presented by Madame Le Gallic: http://www.francemusique.fr/emission/concert-de-midi-et-demi-jeunes-interpretes [However, if you click on that link, it seems that the program starts at 12:30, not 12.]Internet link

As of November 11, only a handful of tickets are left. <All concerts of this orchestra are very well attended, it seems, judging from ticket sales.> Info here. This is the last of Nobu's public performance in Europe before he returns to Japan.
20 minutes before Nobu performed in a Munich concert with the Munich Symphony Orchestra and conductor Andriy Yurkevych in Munich, Germany, Honourable Husband @HonourableHusba tweeted
Nobuyuki Tsujii is playing Rachmaninov II. Masa is a fan and we're thrilled to have a close seat. (@ Philharmonie) http://4sq.com/1eIoDKJand some time later, he posted:
And a crowd pleasing performance from Nobu, as ever. Was it not the Rach 2 that tested David Helfgott so?Nov 12 Nobu's official website promptly posted a report on the performance. The concert's program was quite heavy and Nobu's Rach 2 was sandwiched between two Tchaikovsky works. Nobu played only one encore. English translation follows:
Germany , Munich
November 12, '13 ( Germany )
The second day of playing Rachmaninof's Piano Concerto No. 2, this time in the Philharmonic in Gasteig in Munich with the Munich Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Mr. Andriy Yurkevych. Large hall of audience totaling 2,400 was nearly full . I received a warm applause. I played in the encore Troika of Tchaikovsky ( November from "The Four Seasons ") .
By the way, the first work performed on this day was Romeo and Juliet by Tchaikovsky, and Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6 "Pathetique" was performed in the 2nd half.
The day before the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra performed the 5th Symphony of Tchaikovsky, and tomorrow the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra will play Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet, his Violin Concerto, and Symphony No. 5 ,
It has become the Tchaikovsky Week.

A big thanks to an Italian admirer of Nobu, who kindly informed me of a newly announced performance - a big one! On March 10 of 2014, Nobu will perform Piano Concerto no. 3 by Sergei Prokofiev with the Filarmonica de la Scala and Valery Gergiev at the Theatro alla Scala La Scala Theatre, Milan, Italy. Nobu performed Prokofiev's 3rd concerto for the first time in London, in 2012 - I was there.
I have been in the La Scala Theatre It is breathtakingly beautiful, both inside and outside.
