For 24-year-old pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii, being blind from birth never affected his ability to play masterpieces by Chopin, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Liszt, or to create his own compositions. In this inspiring, music-filled documentary portrait, filmmaker Peter Rosen follows “Nobu” from his Carnegie Hall debut (after winning the Van Cliburn Competition), through his 2013 American tour and subsequent performance trips to the earthquake and tsunami areas of northeastern Japan.
Following the screening, a discussion about Nobuyuki Tsujii and his work will include onstage participants Zarin Mehta, Co-Executive Director of the Green Music Center at Sonoma State University, and former President and Executive Director of the New York Philharmonic; Larry Furukawa-Schlereth and Co-Executive Director of the Green Music Center.
Film 68 min. plus discussion.
