- Nobuyuki Tsujii piano
The first of three lunchtime concerts in the Avex Recital Series 2017 features Japanese pianist, Nobuyuki Tsujii. A joint Gold Medal winner at the 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and a musician of ‘unparalleled excitement’ (Observer), Tsujii performs Bach’s Italian Concerto and sonatas by Mozart and Beethoven.
‘Nobuyuki Tsujii proved he has a sensitive ear, a light touch and the sort of technique that needs no allowances. …Tsujii was greeted with an enormous, sustained ovation – justifiably so’ Andrew Clark, Fina
‘His opening chords were spectral wisps but they swelled to a ripe fullness, after which he was off in an interpretation of notable restraint and refinement…he dominated the Adagio with easy grace, giving its lyrical lines a sweet sincerity, and avoiding all temptation to milk the music for emotional effect. His way with the Scherzo was beautifully judged, with brilliant passage-work and exuberant power. His encore – Liszt’s ‘La campanella’ – was exquisite’ Michael Church, Independent
