Pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii to Perform at Lafayette with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra

The latest performance of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at Lafayette College will include Nobuyuki Tsujii, winner of the 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.

The performance is scheduled for 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 28 at the Williams Center for the Arts. Tickets are $29, and ticket holders are welcome to attend a 6:30 p.m. rehearsal as well.

Blind since birth, the 25-year-old Japanese pianist has performed solo recitals at Carnegie Hall, the Aspen Festival and the Kennedy Center, along with concerto engagements with many of the world’s most prominent orchestras.

The Williams Center performance will feature a heroic work that has become something of a specialty for Tsujii; Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, "Emperor". Orpheus will open the program with another Beethoven favorite, the Overture to Coriolan, and close with Mozart’s Symphony No. 39.

Tickets can be purchased online by clicking here, or by calling the box office at 610-330-5009 between noon and 2 p.m. or 4 to 5 p.m. on weekdays, or in person one hour before the performance.
