Nobuyuki Tsujii is a Japanese pianist and composer, who started playing music when he was 2.  He played a tune that his mother had been humming on a toy piano.  He won first prize at the 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano competition, and played at Carnegie Hall in 2013. He will be 26 in September.

I learned about him yesterday, when I attended a masters piano seminar.

This is the video of him playing Chopin Twelve Etudes, Op.10 during the semi finals for the Clyburn Competition.


Oh, one more thing:  He can’t see.

I am like a rich tapestry, full of texture and color. I'm a musician, composer, poet, gardener, homemaker and friend. I worked as anLCSW for 22 years; as a socialworker for 26 years all told. Before that, I was a rehabilitation teacher. My passion is to come alongside others; to empower and bless them. That is why you will find plenty of variety in my blog. Two very important things to know about me is that I am a life-long learner - An explorer and sojourner. I also belong to the Lord, before you get tweeked out: I am not saying I am "religious." There is a huge difference between all of the rules and empty practice that often gets associated with Christianity and the kind of life that comes from being in a relationship with the loving God. May you find encouragement, inspiration, insight, good ideas and a laugh or two as you read my posts and comments.

    1. My pleasure. I found him to be inspiring. I’m betting my piano teacher would panic at the thought of trying to teach me pieces that complex!
