On March 11, 2011, the world watched totally helpless, as Japan suffered a magnitude 9 earthquake. The resulting tsunami devastated a significant coastal area. Those of us who saw it on the news may never forget the incredibly destructive power of “mother nature”.
Eight months later, a 23-year-old pianist (Nobuyuki Tsujii) appeared on the stage at Carnegie Hall and played an original composition entitled “Elegy for the victims of the Tsunami of March 11, 2011 in Japan”.
He played with such emotions that tears flowed from his eyes. The audience later gave him a standing ovation. Enjoy!
