Skills on Courts and Keys
While my brothers and I are following the French Open this week, my sister, Lexi, is just as passionately following a sport of another, entirely different, kind: the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition. I have to admit to also having been drawn into watching the competition since it's start last week. The virtuosity and skill of the competitors, their varying backgrounds and their enthusiasm for music is hard to resist watching. I must confess to some favorites already, one of whom is Nobuyuki Tsujji, who has been blind from birth. Take a minute to watch this incredible video of Nobuyuki's preliminary recital and read this short interview with his father.
