TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Nobuyuki Tsujii has become a star of the international classical music, despite his blindness. He has played in more than 160 concerts around the world ranging from London's Royal Albert Hall to Carnegie Hall in New York. Tsujii has played with the Saint-Petersburg Orchestra and the London Philharmonic.
The strong-willed, blind Japanese man will also be giving his first major recital in France later this month. He began learning music at four and learned to read sheet music via Braille. But many compositions were not accessible via this method and he learned to play by ear, from memory.
