On April 23 Deutsche Grammophon signed Japanese pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii, universally known as Nobu.

The 35-year-old’s DG debut album, set for release at the beginning of 2025, will include Beethoven’s Sonata No. 29 in B flat major Op. 106 “Hammerklavier”, which is among the most complex and demanding works in the piano repertoire. Deutsche Grammophon also plans to reissue and promote the pianist’s extensive existing classical discography (recorded for his former label, Avex Classics International) in both digital and physical formats.

STAGE+ will premiere a recital Nobu presented in Tokyo’s famed Suntory Hall in February 2024, showcasing works by three composers central to his repertoire – and closest to his heart. The recital featured Rachmaninoff’s early set of Moments Musicaux Op. 16 and haunting Vocalise, alongside Chopin’s four Impromptus – including the famous Fantasie-Impromptu in C Sharp Minor – and Bach’s sunny French Suite No. 5. All in all, it made for an unforgettable evening in the Japanese capital.
