Nodame Cantabile: Tokyo et Paris
Sunday, June 24, 2012
This is currently my favourite song. (it's french)
Piano and Violin version
This song came from an Anime called Nodame Cantabile. It has 3 seasons and it's aired a rather long time ago.
Plot Summary: At a top music academy in Japan, Shinichi Chiaki's arrogance is matched only by his top-notch piano playing. But when Chiaki and the teacher get into a fight, he's demoted to the reject class. Chiaki is left to pursue his dream of being a conductor while surrounded by a bunch of loser musicians and one annoying girl, Noda, who has proclaimed herself Chiaki's girlfriend. It doesn't help that Noda, who insists on being called Nodame, lives right next door to him.
This show is entirely about music. So if you don't have any interest in classical music at all; watch it anyway, because you might get into it after listening to some of the pieces! There's also a love/comedy situation going on, it's probably good enough on it's own to make you want to watch the entire Anime.
Watching this made me regret not learning piano at a younger age. Well, it's one of my life goals to learn how to play the piano before I die. That's a must. It's a blissful feeling to be able to get drunk on your own music. (sorry, direct chinese translation. 自我陶醉)
Anyway, big thanks to S for introducing to me this anime, else I would've missed out on something great.
