A native of California, Jon Nakamatsu claimed a distinguished place on the international musical scene in June, 1997 when named the Gold Medallist of the Tenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, the only American to have achieved this distinction since 1981.
"Nakamatsu unleashed his big keyboard style with a joyous abandon. Sumptuous tunes and glittery passagework tumbled forth all afternoon, and Nakamatsu was far from shy about taking a showman's delight in the extroverted razzmatazz. He had fun, the audience had fun and the music was splendidly well served." - SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
