辻井伸行さんのチケットの売れ方は凄まじいと思います。クラシックのコンサートとは思えない売れ方。会場販売のチケットは即完売。早々にして望み薄だと感 じたくらいです。キャンセル待ちも無いという。つまり聴きに来る方も少し違うということ。それだけの人を動かすのだから、やっぱり凄いのだと。 I think  how Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii is selling tickets is tremendous.  I don't think that classic concerts are selling. But that his tickets are sold out now gives me some early hope.  There is no waiting list.  The fact is, the people who come to listen to him are a little different.  Becuase people are just moved by his music, and know it is amazing.

 Nobuyuki Tsujii Recital -- Cannot buy tickets
Recital of Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii will be held in  spring
Since last year and I have been looking forward to today but was standing in line before 10:00;  sold out after 3 minutes;  sold out everywhere.  .. Post #647 on a gamers' board - posted by a Canadian:
The concert I saw yesterday was an irreplaceable jewel of experience for my treasure box. I was seated on stage across from the performer at the back of the piano, situated perfectly to see his face and the movement of the hammers. He gave four pieces by Debussy, four by Chopin, and one of his own.
To see the shameless rapture on his face and hear his frenzied sibilant breathing as he thundered forth flawless music with such a range of power and tenderness was sublime. I also got to shake his hand and say hello afterwards; he was sweet and soft-spoken with a small, cool, smooth hand like a petal.
Here is his playing from several years ago,,  the wonderful Nobuyuki Tsujii, who was born blind and learns to play by ear alone.
I think my favourite thing he did was to stay leaned forwards over the keys after finishing a piece, letting the silence linger for several moments before standing to bow. One thing I hate at performances is when people rush to applaud the SECOND the last note is played, leaving no time to fully digest its finality

Nobuyuki Tsujii to play in Seattle recital, ‘Celebrate Asia’
Pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii, a 2009 Van Cliburn gold medalist and a superstar in his native Japan, performs Jan. 22 with Seattle Symphony and in the Jan. 27, 2013, “Celebrate Asia” program... <The last paragraph, about Nobu performing on the Ishinomake Piano salvaged from the tsunami, is quite moving - copied below>
Q: In December 2011, you played a grand piano — part of your benefit work for earthquake victims — that was restored after being damaged in Japan’s quake earlier that year.
A: In March (2011), the eastern part of Japan was hit by a huge earthquake, and coasts were seriously damaged by a gigantic tsunami. In May, I met students from a devastated area. A young girl said her house had been washed away and she had lost her piano. It was shocking and heartbreaking. I imagined that one day, if I lost my piano, I would feel as if I’d lost my life.
Since then, I’ve wished to help and use music to soothe the pain and sorrow of those who lost family, friends, a lover, or other important parts of their lives. In December, I was given an opportunity to play this restored piano that had been totally washed out by the tsunami.
It was carefully and patiently restored, though it was not at the standard of a normal concert grand. But when I played it, I felt as if the piano was telling me stories about its own painful experience. The piano had survived, but, probably, he may have lost his partner, the person who had shared the joy of making music together. And there were many other pianos who lost their partners, and many people who lost their pianos. I felt the piano was moaning and grieving. Yet, those who had survived, including the piano, have the future to live. It was a deeply emotional experience. <This edited version of an article written by me appeared in the Northwestern Asian Weekly - the headline is not mine; I object to the word 'Blind' in it.>

Mr. Tsujii is still only 24 years old; four years ago he caught a great international award.  Do you remember a press conference at the time?  An insensitive reporter asked the question, "If you could only see for one day, what would you want to see?"  Mr. Tsujii was not ruffled.  He replied, "I would like to see the faces of my parents."  Me,  I thought of the faces of the parents of that journalist...

辻井伸行さん、音色は素晴らし いと思います。最近では、チャイコフスキーのピアノ協奏曲、素晴らしいです。ショパンやリストのソロは、勿論弾けて上手なのですが、単調で新鮮味には欠け る気がします。しかし、ハンデを感じさせず、今後飛躍する可能性ありだと思います。 I think Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii, the sound is great. Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto, in recent years, is amazing. Chopin solo or Liszt, of course there is good pop, but I feel that it lacks freshness and is monotonous. However,  the handicap is not felt.   I think there is a possibility that he will make a leap in the future.  -tweet by one Mr. Lily in response to another tweet <posting on Classical music bulletin board> 2013/1/13(日) 19:58

Nobuyuki Tsujii BBC Philharmonic concert performance in April.  I heard that it is sold out, Or standing room tickets are out. I listened to Tsujii twice in the past "separately", but I think we'd like to listen to him with BBC Phil once. But I don't really want to buy a standing room at what is said to be 3500 yen, I didn't realize the amazingly popularity. <"Walk, don't run" blog - a male blogger;

.. 午後、ピアニスト辻井伸行が演奏するПётр Ильич Чайковский を聴いて、喜怒哀楽などの源であり、その先にある「生の力」に触れた様な体験をして感動する。同時に感情の個別性の先にある「生の力」こそが「芸術の力」 やAdam Smithを始めとする「学問の力」なのではないかと考えていた。それにしても、「芸術」にしろ「学問」にしろ自分の「固定概念」がいつも自分を締め付け る。Afternoon, listening to the pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii play  Пётр Ильич Чайковский (Tchikovsky).
It is a source, such as emotions,
Impressed by the experience like I mentioned in the "raw power" that lies ahead.
I was thinking whether it is not a "force of scholarship", starting with Adam Smith and the "power of art," what is "raw power" in the destination of individual feelings at the same time.
Even so, "Art", white "Academic"  is to me the  "Stereotype".

"Piano Friends"
Today, while eating cheese cake
I watched with my eldest son a TV program of Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii which had been recorded on New Year Day.
It was wonderful
Eldest son asked: Does this person have eyes? No? I have to worry about things like that, huh.
We cried.
I have never been in contact with a disabled person, and I couldn't help wondering how it would be to not be able to see.
But, from watching TV, I know there are many such people in the world.
The eldest son loves Mr. Tsujii ... <The blog ends with a paragraph about a book about Nobu, "Piano Friend", which the son read.>

前のブログ、 ブーニンが弾く曲は ショパンの「エチュード」(練習曲) ですが、ショパンは自身がピアニストであったので、自分のため、(もちろん他の人のためにも)、技術を身につけることができる練習曲を作りたい、と思ったのですね。
ペダルの技法、 運指の技法、…テクニックのすべてを組み込んだピアノのためのエチュード(練習曲)です。
   対照的(モーツアルトは軽快なテンポ、 ショパンは繊細な旋律)なのにね…。
天使の指の動き、 です。
Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii

In previous blog,  Bunin plays Chopin's etude. Chopin himself was also a pianist, the etudes were made for himself (as well for others, of course) to  practice their skills.  The etudes incorporate all of the techniques: technique of the pedal, fingering techniques.  But in the end they did not end up being practice pieces, but have become masterpieces in the world.  Chopin worshiped Mozart, byt his melody is delicate, as opposed to Mozart;s lively tempo.  In the times of Mozart, the piano did not yet have pedals, and so the reverberation was not there. 
So, this is how Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii played the same song ↓ <YouTibe video of Nobu playing "Revolution">
The finger movements of an angel, it is.

辻井伸行は音がすんごい繊細で細かいトリル一つ一つが すっごい綺麗なわけ。 なおかつ大胆な部分もあるからすごく尊敬だわ。  会って話してみたい。The sound of Nobuyuki Tsujii is wonderfully delicate, with fine-grained trill wonderfully clean. And yet some parts are played very boldly;  I really respect that.   I'd love to meet and talk.  -tweet

Debut [2CD] [OBI] [C&L Music]...

 Nobuyuki before he became a worldwide sensation, September 21, 2010
This review is from: Debut [2CD] [OBI] [C&L Music] [Korea 2009] (Audio CD)
This album first came out in Japan in 2007, when Nobuyuki Isujii was 19. I believe it's the first of Nobuyuki Tsujii's commercial CDs. The recording quality is excellent.
Disc 1 contains well-known pieces of Chopin, Liszt, and Ravel. Included are Chopin's Berceuse and Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, which Tsujii also performed at the 2009 Van Cliburn Competition that launched him into international fame. These pieces are all lovingly played with Nobuyuki's signature delicate touch. The fourth track, Chopin's Polonaise No 6 "Heroic", has an interesting context. According to an article translated from Japanese, Nobuyuki's mother is quoted as saying "(A)bout eight months after Nobuyuki was born ... (when) I played a CD of Chopin's Polonaise in A-flat major, he started moving his body and kicking the sliding door - and in perfect rhythm with the music. I later discovered that he would be cranky if he heard this same piece performed by anyone other than the famous Russian pianist Stanislav Bunin. Even at this early age he was distinguishing between different types of piano tones."
On disc 2 are Nubuyuki's composition, with 5 pieces that are somewhat of a fusion of Chopin, Liszt, Debussy and Japanese music, with a touch of jazz. These works are not Chopin, but the second track "Whisper of the river", which plays at the end of the documentary "A Surprise in Texas", is especially lovely.

辻井伸行さま…!素晴らしい…! Nobuyuki Tsujii sama ...! Great ...!  -tweet <'sama'  is the most respectful form for Mr.>  This blog post is about the blogger looking in vain in Tokyo for a CD of another pianist who won some International competition a while back, but it mentions Nobu:
 のぞいたCD ショップは溝の口と渋谷のTSUTAYA、それに東京・銀座の山野楽器店で、置いてないということはまずどこにもない、ということだろう。山野楽器店では 2009年にヴァン・クライバーン国際コンクールで日本人として初めて優勝した盲目の辻井伸之のCDは50種類くらい並んでいた。辻井伸行より、本格的な クラシックのピアニストであると思われる萩原麻未のCDがないとは一体、どういうことなのだろうか、と不思議に思った。 <The blogger could not find the CD he was looking for in Shibuya and TSUTAYA Mizonokuchi, Yamano Music in Ginza, Tokyo shop, CD shop.  At Yamano, there were on display about 50 different titles of Nobuyuki Tsujii, the blind pianist who was the first Japanese that won the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2009 .  Yet there is no CD of Hagiwara Asami, who is assumed to be a full-fledged classical pianist  ... <This article, which appears in "Everyday News", is about a fluitist, 田中利奈さん(24) Rena Tanaka (age 24), and it mentions Nobu>:
... 10歳から本格的にフルートを習い始め、姫路市の日ノ本学園高校へ。さ らに上野学園大学(東京)に進み、ピアニストの辻井伸行さんらと学んだ。... Started learning the flute in earnest at the age of 10, at the Hinomoto Gakuen High School in Himeji. In addition, went on to Ueno Music College   (Tokyo) where she studied with pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii as colleagues...

I heard on TV Nobuyuki Tsujii's Carnegie Hall recital in New Year.
It would be presumptuous of me to speak of the splendor of the playing of Mr. Tsujii.  The sound of the piano came through to me, taking me to the world of music and soothing me.
But whether those in the audience thought it was good I could not be sure. It was hard to tell on the television.
After the applause, Mr. Tsujii returned to backstage crying into his sleeve and said he was impressed by the applause.  This bond with this audience was indescribably lovely...  <blog of a sytlist>

あの長い曲を暗譜? 譜読みはどうしたのかしら。
Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii
New Year's Eve, I watched on TV Nobuyuki Tsujii performing at the Carnegie Hall.
I was unconsciously drawn.
It is a unique style of playing the piano, turning from side to side in the face.
I cannot begin to guess how much time he spent in front of the piano together.
Most of his time at home must have been spent with the piano.
How does he memorize a lengthy piece?  How does he read music?
In his head is a reproduction of the piano.
Family support is great of course.
But, the accomplishment is made by Mr. Tsujii.
He answered questions with a smile on his baby face, full of confidence.
Moving his face as an antenna, he sees more than those of us with eyes do.
His performance in Europe was also broadcast on the evening of New Year's Day, on the same channel.
I could not watch the whole show.
I know that he is a composer,
From one song shown on it.

今日は、2013年1月6日。ボーっとしているうちに、2012年は終わってしまった。暮れには何をしたんだっけ? とにかく、疲れと眠気で椅子に座って居眠りばかりしていた。「やらなきゃ」とおもったことは、何一つできなかった。
  居眠りのあいまに、テレビで辻井伸行さんの番組を、続けて見た。それだけは心に残っている。モツアルトのピアノソナタ11番、3楽章がトルコ行進曲の、何 十回も聞いたことのあるこの曲が、こんなにいい曲だったことをはじめて知った。かれの幸運は、親が伸行君の才能を2,3歳という幼時にみつけ、それを伸ば すことに全力をあげたことだ。全盲という障害があるから、何もさせず、守ってばかりいたら、何億人に一人というほどの、伸行さんの才能が、こんな形で、開 花することはなかっただろう。親や教師は、子供の行きたい方向の前に立ちふさがって、じゃますることが多い。よかれとおもってそうするのだろうけれども、 それはやめたほうがいいと思う。
Today, January 6, 2013.  2012  was finished. What did I do at  the end? Anyway, I was just falling asleep sitting in a chair , tired and sleepy.  In between dozing, I saw a program of Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii on television. It only remains in the mind. Mozart Piano Sonata No. 11, movement 3 "Turkish March" , I've heard dozens of times, so it was a good song. His fortune is that his parents did their best to develop the talent of Nobuyuki.  Without that, a blind person would not acheive what he has.  Out of hundreds of millions of people, Mr. Nobuyuki has blossomed. So often, Parents and teachers stand in the way of the children's progress ... I dozed off while listening to the piano of Mr. Nobuyuki;  it was a good way to end 2012 for me.

I replied with: This ships to Japan. high notes from Harry
This new star of the concert stage was a winner of the 2009 Van Cliburn Competition. He is so unique, he deserves the widest exposure – performing a concerto with the WSO (Jan. 18–19) and a Virtuosi recital the following afternoon. That “Nobu” is also completely blind from birth is forgotten as soon as his fingers touch the keyboard. Amazingly, he learns all the music by ear. You must be here to understand why Van Cliburn himself said, “Nobu’s performance had the power of a healing service; you feel God’s presence in the room.”

New Year's Eve and New Year's night,  my entire family watched shows ln VS-Asahi about miracle pianist  'Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii'
The shows inspire the the hearts of those who hear, and stir the soul. I think he and the piano has almost become one.    A boundless universe appears through the sound of his piano.
God has manifested in the soul in Mr. Tsujii's innocent playing
Beauty of every moment in the world of sound, an infinite  beauty
My Soul was trembling too...

The sound of Nobuyuki Tsujii
I listened to the piano of Nobuyuki Tsujii on TV
I heard rain falling.
The sound was pure and crystal clear, His handicap was complete forgotten as his hands  move freely over the keyboard.

When beginners play,
the keyboard is straight back,
Tsujii's keyboard is spacious and the keyboard is like a trampoline. .
It is very small but,
Soft and heavy object fell on the keyboard,
The sound of feeling that would fly with the pawn.
Well, do you understand? I think it is difficult to express in words, but there is a charm to the sound.
I want to listen to him live.

Classic works composed in different countries of Europe made ​​long ago, music for their people's customs,
But the piano sound that comes out of Mr. Tsujii's playing has a sound like that of no one else.
And, the music takes hold of us aswe listen to the performance of Mr. Tsujii directly,
So impressed.
In my ripe old age, I have become brittle and prone to tears.
I felt tears coming out as I listened to the performance of Mr. Tsujii, a feeling of being liberated.
I listened to a master of piano, Mr. Tsujii, whose music is matchless...

先日手元に届いていた辻井くんの発売されたばかりの新譜です。やっと観ることができました。CDとDVDの2枚セットの自作自演集で、CDの方はすでに出 ていた内容ですが、DVDは軽井沢大賀ホールで今年の8月30日にお客さんの前で収録されたリサイタルのライブ映像です。最後にボーナストラックで『花は 咲く』の演奏。
それから、昨日届いたばかりの情報ですが、彼は今夜のNHK『紅白歌合戦』に出場するようです。時間帯はおそらく20:30~21:00くらいの間でおそ らく『花は咲く』の演奏。そろそろNHKホールでは準備も始まっている頃でしょうか。「紅白」は生放送ですから、大晦日の夜まで仕事で大忙しです。現在彼 は日本ツァーの真っ最中ですから、年末年始もお休みナシですね。
Release of Nobuyuki Tsujii original compositions CD+DVD
It is New Year's eve. 
The image above is the CD jacket photo, the white margins are not square because the background of the blog is also white . (Lol)
It is the new album that has just been released-it was sent by Tsujii-kun the other day.
I finally was able to watch.  A collection of homebrew pieces on a combo of CD and DVD . The DVD is video recorded of a live performance on August 30 of this year of a recital in Karuizawa Ohga Hall.  At the end there is a  bonus track "flowers bloom".
Then, just to day I received information. He seems to be participating in the "Red and White Singing Contest" on NHK tonight. The time slot of his playing "flowers bloom" is probably between about 20:30 to 21:00. The show is starting in the NHK Hall very soon.
Because "Red and white" is live, it is very busy at work on the night of New Year's Eve. Because he is in the midst of the current Japan tour, he is doing without  the New Year holiday.
Also tonight. Asahi BS will broadcast a counter program "Nobuyuki Tsujii Carnegie debut Dream " (21:00 to 22:54), and then on New Year's Day tomorrow, " Miracle pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii 10 years with conductor Yutaka Sado - the melody of the soul" will be broadcast.  Both are two-hour program. Let's check it out.

This Hokkaido male blogger (age 72, an avid skier) looked back on the 4 concerts that he managed to attend this year, and this is the first one that he listed:
. Nobuyui Tsujii 2011/12 tour (January 18)
The recital of blind genius pianist Tsujii .

Preceding  his reputation, I did not fully enjoy his complacent performance.
Since winning the Cliburn International Piano Competition,
His popularity seems to take precedence over his talent. <I looked up this blogger's comment of that recital - he spoke derisively of the predominantly female audience and snidely remarked that there was an absence of very young women who show up for other young musicians such as Yundi-Li and Ryu Goto, and joked that Nobu is not being chased after by these young females.  He was also dismissive of Nobu's performance.
I posted this comment:

こんにちは。 アメリカから: 私は辻井伸行くんのファンです。(From America: I am a fan of Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii)
Please forgive me for not being able to write in Japanese.
I looked up your blog post about Mr. Tsujii's recital on January 18, and cannot help but be angry. 
I find your comments extremely rude and prejudiced.  You started by calling Mr. Tsujii "blind genius pianist", and went on to make snide comments on the age of the female audience at the concert, a sweeping generalization at best. 
You are entitled to your learned opinion of Mr. Tsujii's piano performance, but I feel that you are blinded to the talent of Mr. Tsujii because it seems that you had already formed your opinion based on his handicap. 
Mr. Tsujii is respected by many outside of your country, and I consider him a world treasure.  I am outraged by your insensitive comments.  You should be ashamed of yourself.

辻井伸行って純粋に実力としては どうなんだろう。盲目のというハンディを抜きに。私にはよくわからんけど。  Nobuyuki Tsujii - I wonder if it is purely his ability, without the handicap of blindness.  Though I really don't know.   -tweet

Happily playing percussive in a shop, and
Blowing and struming folk instruments.
It was really fun.
Mr. Tsujii said he enjoyed listening to a performance.
I felt the kind words were heavy and deep...

However, because I am familiar with the Mozart of both Glenn Gould and Nobuyuki Tsujii, I find Gould's insufficient. :-) :-) >

<read more about today's recital in Nagasaki at  Nobuyuki Tsujii 2012-13 Japan Tour>
A Japanese Nobu fan who traveled from Europe to Japan for the holidays wrote:

I went to Nagasaki.
I enjoyed his performance.
It made me happier than move to tears.
He gave me the joy of music.
He played 6 encores.
1.    Chopin Étude Op. 10 No. 3
2.    Chopin Étude Op. 10 No. 12
3.    それでも 生きてゆく
4.    花は咲く
5.    Liszt La Campanella
6.    Chopin Nocturne No. 8 op.27 no.2
Before playing “それでも生きてゆく” he talked:
“Nagasaki is my second home (province). I am happy to come back home.”
“I am used to enjoying eating Gyoza餃子(dumpling or jiao-zi) of XXX (restaurant’s name) Saraudon皿うどん <another noodle dish special to Nagasaki> of YYY (restaurant’s name) and Chanponチャンポン<a regional noodele dish >  in Nagasaki.”
Also he said that Flowers are blooming is a charity CD, so I would like to ask for everyone's cooperation.
And he announced his appearance in a TV program “ The NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen.”
We audience didn’t expect the 5th ancore, so erupted into cheers and applause when he started to play.
When he sat down at the piano after applauding a performance of “la Campanella” everybody was surprised and excited.
I thought I was lucky to be there.

I went to a concert of Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii at the Aubade Hall on December 14!!
My mother read a book about  Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii, mother reading a book, and has also been listening to his CD, and is actually quite a fan of him.
I was looking forward to this day very much.
After the performance had begun, I thought "Are we on earth here?!"
I had never heard a sound like this in this world.
As I listened to one pure sound after another, my mind was healed and purified. I was moved to tears.
Then, in response to the applause. Mr. Tsujii re-appeared for encores.
Said he, " I'm very happy to receive such a big hand.  You have made me very happy."
I thought they were  wonderful words!
It brought more tears.
The piano was as beautiful as a work of art,
Although I did not look at it closely until the end of the concert,
Tears came out from just looking at the piano.  <photo shown>
I was able to spend (LOL, Too much crying!) a great time.
It was a moment that seemed "very happy" .
I think I will come to listen to the great music again next year.

「好 きな人ができたらその人のために曲を作って弾いてあげたい」と言った時の辻井伸行さんのはにかんだ笑顔がすごくいいと思った。When I heard that Mr. Nobuyuki Tsujii said, "I like to play music for people", I thought of that nice, shy smile of him.

A Nobu fan in Japan wrote:
Wow! Nobu will even be on the Kouhaku Utagassen show?! I just can't believe how popular he is because the Kouhaku show <The year-end singing singing contest show> is still really a big deal in Japan and it's supposed to feature the most popular pop/enka singers. ... Nobu is so generous to come to play only one song. I wish NHK will tell us exactly when he will be playing since it's a long show. ..
