The closest thing to a Nodame Cd that I can find is this….
NODAME CANTABILE SELECTION CD BOOK VOL. 2
that comes with a cute pictorial book.
The pictures in here are kawaii…..
The listed masterpieces include:
- Berlioz: “Le Carnaval Romain” Ouverture
- Ravel : Ma Mere L’Pue-III Pavane de la belle au bois dormant
- Stravinsky : Trois mouvements de Petrouchka
- Ravel : Jeux d’eau
- Poulene : Trio pour piano, hautbois et basson II Andante
- Dukas : L’apprenti sorcier
- Mozart : Sonate fur Klavier Nr 8. a-moll, KV 310 (300d) – II
Well, I guess this only make up a few of the many orchestra pieces mentioned in the manga. But apparantly , the actual cd compilation for this series is very popular. I guess this CD can be another attractive tool for teachers to introduce classical music to the students in a fun way….I’m still trying out the cd…is not like the usual classical pieces I’ve listened too…these pieces are not often heard.
Oh..how I wish my local stores would import more such Japanese cds over here as well.. ….
