||辻井伸行 plays 花は咲く "Nobuyuki Tsujii plays Flowers Bloom'"
On August 16, 2012 Nobuyuki Tsujii recorded a performance with a junior high school choir from the region devastated by the March 2011 Japan earthquake, for a show aired on NHK TV on September 5th. http://tinyurl.com/btopecm
This mini-album was announced soon after that performance. It contains recordings of 5 renditions (piano solos, with soprano 森麻季 Maki Mori, with violinist 篠崎史紀 Fuminori Shinozaki, and with the 郡山市立安積中学校合唱部 Asaka Koriyama Municipal junior high schoir) of the song "花は咲く Flowers Bloom" composed by artists from the earthquake-torn region. Part of the proceeds will go towards Japan's reconstruction efforts.

||Nobuyuki Tsujii Carnegie Hall Live (Europe version) DVD, EuroArts, released in June 2012.
This is a one-hour video that was aired on Europe's Arte Channel in May 2012. It is a Peter Rosen production, and has footage that was not included in the Japan version released in January 2012.
||はやぶさ 遥かなる帰還 オリジナル・サウンドトラック The soundtrack of the film "Return of the Hayabusa Falcon", for the music of which Nobu was entirely responsible,
20 tracks of predominantly orchestral music: Hollywood film music quality to my ears.
To my ears, this music is world class. There are only a couple of piano tracks, but the main theme, rendered by different instruments (including a soprano's haunting rendition) and in orchestral arrangements, is immensely listenable as background music.

||Chopin: Piano Works - 2005 Chopin Piano Competition.
I was unaware that these are recordings from Nobuyuki's live performances at
the 2005 Chopin Competition*. The album is manufactured and distributed by Victor
Entertainment, Inc. of Japan. Seventeen at the time, Nobuyuki was
already astonishingly accomplished. The music on the two discs of this album is a gem and, price-wise, the album is a
bargain in comparison to his more recent CDs. Tracks not found in his
later CDs include Etude in C sharp minor Op.25-6, Nocturne in B minor
Op. 62-1, Waltz in F major, Op.34-3, Barcarolle in F sharp major, Op.60,
Preludes Op.28, 19 through 24 (heartfelt happiness, funeral march, Sunday, impatience, a pleasure boat, the storm), Sonata No 3 in B minor, Op.58. Not only
is the music in this album wonderful -- his Scherzo in B minor, Op. 31,
No 2 was already near perfection -- but it's a good benchmark of how
Nobuyuki had evolved by the time he won the Cliburn. This CD is available only through Japanese sources such as amazon.com.co.jp and http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/ This album can be ordered from http://www.amazon.ca/, which shares accounts with amazon.com
Debut Nobuyuki Tsujii. This album was
released by Avex Classics in 2007, and its sales skyrocketed in Japan
after Nobu's Cliburn win. The Chopin Scherzo No. 2 (second track on
disc 1) alone is worth the price, plus Liszt's Liebestraum and Hungarian
Rhapsody No. 2, and Nobuyuki's own compositions on disc 2 (including
"Whisper of the River".) This album is available on ebay (at a decent price <$20), amazon.com
and iTunes; also available at http://www.amazon.ca/, amazon.com.co.jp and http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/
Piano Concerto 2 (available on ebay, amazon.com, and can be downloaded from iTunes at
a modest price) - Nobuyuki Tsujii made this recording in 2008 with
conductor Yutaka Sado, who has been a close friend and perhaps mentor since Nobuyuki's junior high days. This performance was recorded with the Deutsches Symphonie, which is still listed as the principal on iTunes, perhaps because Nobuyuki and Sado were considered unknowns.Get it at a decent price (<$20) on ebay, through a Korean distributor.

* The tracks on the Chopin Piano works CD are live recordings from his 2005 Chopin Competition performance. According to this page from the competition: http://www.musicweb-international.com/classrev/2006/dec06/Chopin_15th_DUX0068_DUX0066.htm, the competition awarded Nobuyuki the honor of having a CD of his performance issued even though he did not advance to the final round. ( I strongly disagree with the opinion of the writer of the article, however, of Nobu's tracks.)
