Tatsuya Nagashima
What the Critics are Saying...

“Resonating with the American Symphony Orchestra, Nagashima's Liszt Piano Concerto No. 1 had the power and warmth. His performance was not only virtuosic, but also, there were delicacy and sensitivity. He fascinated audience with the flowing Liszt, received a long standing ovations... he dazzled audience with an encore, dream like performance of Chopin's nocturne. His sensitive touch and passionate expression made the outstanding performance.”
