Looking for a Fic

Hi everyone!

I'm looking for a Nodame Cantabile fanfic.

I read it a while ago, but can't seem to find it anymore.

It's about Nodame and chiaki being separated, they meet again and Nodame is an accomplished pianist who's retiring, while Chiaki is going out with a rich and kind girl.

Nodame has cancer and she's refusing treatement - turns out her doctor is the grandad of the girl Chiaki is seeing.


Thanks in advance

Russian opera star Nodame post now in English!

Hello, again!

First of all, thank you for your support and interest. I'veasked you to leave comments in Moskalkov's Livejournal post about Nodame Cantabile and there you go - he made a special post for you in English - http://moskalkov-opera.livejournal.com/461800.html.

It seems really interesting. Here's a quote:

"Recently, I took part in a Russian talk-show “Culture Revolution” where many professionals discussed the modern state of opera. The main question was – Should we modernize the opera? Do we need to make it hip and trendy to attract younger viewers? Some singers said that directors today make classical operas a little too modern, create performances with flying singing monkeys, Red Army soldiers and God knows what else only to shock the audience. I personally think that this is a horrible way to go.

You can and you should make experiments, but you have to respect the original, you have to understand the music to make it all work and portray and incredible power of the composer’s vision. Same is true for classical music in general. And this is where Nodame Cantabile does everything right. It’s a great example of a very intriguing and smart experiment that still makes you wait for every note and cry sincerely after every great piece.

I guess as a manga Nodame Cantabile was more of a reading experience, it was more a story, rather than anything else. But after it became and animation it turned into an incredible educational project. It’s not just entertaining. It gives you an understanding of how does an orchestra work, how much do you need to study to succeed, how difficult competitions can be and all those things. It gives people not familiar with works of classical composers, an opportunity to hear some of the best pieces of music in the world. And there was lot of music written by Russian composers too. Great!"

Hope you like it. Please comment, repost, share ). Thank you very much.
