Of the multitude of outstanding artists with whom Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is proud to call a collaborator, pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii stands out as one of the longest and most fruitful artistic relationships in the orchestra’s rich 51-year history. Having first appeared on stage with Tsujii in 2014 on a 16-city tour, Orpheus and the pianist will embark on a domestic tour, reaching audiences in New York, Florida, and South Carolina. The degree of inspiration Tsujii elicits from Orpheus cannot be overstated, with their unique bond forged by these blazing artists’ virtuosity in the act of dedicated listening: Orpheus has been conductorless since its inception, and Tsujii has been blind since birth. The similarities and differences between the pianist’s and orchestra’s musical perception and execution is where their interpretations take flight with soaring lyricism and satisfying nuance.
