Orpheus Chamber Orchestra
ORPHEUS CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
Nobuyuki Tsujii, piano
Sunday, January 26, 3pm
The Standard Bearer of Chamber Orchestra Excellence
For 41 years, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra has been making internationally acclaimed music while reinventing the way the world thinks about collaboration, outreach, and democratic leadership. By performing without a conductor and integrating musicians into virtually every facet of the organization, Orpheus empowers its members and infuses performances with unparalleled energy.
This will be the first ever all-Beethoven program for the Orchestra, as they present the assured Symphony No. 2, the emotionally charged Coriolan Overture, and the triumphant Emperor Piano Concerto, which will feature soloist Nobuyuki Tsujii.
Blind since birth, Tsujii is an inspirational musician with a formidable technique and a natural gift for pianistic color. At age 25, his dazzling musicianship has already earned him international recognition; he has performed as both a recitalist and a concerto pianist with many of the world’s great orchestras; he was the joint Gold Medal winner at the 2009 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
