Master class open to public

Colorado State University will host a special open master class session with the 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition joint gold medal winner, Nobuyuki Tsujii, on Tuesday, March 12, 3:30 p.m. in the Organ Recital Hall at the University Center for the Arts.

The master class will conclude with an audience Q&A for Nobuyiki. This event is free and open to the public.

Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii (No-boo-you-key Tsu-gee-ee), affectionately referred to as Nobu by his friends and fans, captured the hearts and imaginations of music lovers the world over with his gold medal-winning performances at the Thirteenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2009.

The resulting audience fervor has taken on a momentum that Time Magazine has coined “Nobu Fever.”

Tsuji: Virtuoso of accuracy, musicality

Acclaimed for his heartfelt and inspiring performances, Nobu is also noted for what the Chicago Tribune praised as “fearless technical assurance, accuracy, and musicality…suppleness of line and lyrical grace.” Blind since birth, Nobu believes that there are no barriers in the field of music.

Master class to be filmed

Tsujii’s master class at Colorado State will be filmed by New York City’s Peter Rosen for a documentary about the life of the artists.

Rosen award-winning film maker

Peter Rosen has produced and directed over 100 full-length films and television programs which have been distributed world-wide and have won awards at all the major film festivals.
