First Prize, 1993 Ibla Grand Prize
"Nagashima's Liszt Piano Concerto No.1 had the power and warmth...His performance was not only virtuosic, but also, there was delicacy and sensitivity...he received a long standing ovation...he dazzled the audience with an encore, dreamlike performance of Chopin's Nocturne. His sensitive touch and passionate expression made the outstanding performance.

"The concert was outstanding... Nagashima was splendid, It reminded me of our great discovery of Van Cliburn in 1958 on this very same stage. (Tchaikovsky Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory) He played with great passion and professionalism."
