楽しい音楽の時間だ! it’s time for enjoyable music!

Posted on: January 15, 2010

last night i went to the bunkamura orchard hall in shibuya to watch the nodame cantabile orchestra in concert!!! ☆ it was a really awesome concert! but before i talk about that, i have two photos from shinjuku‘s tower records XD


a brand new (bigger) arashi corner at shinjuku‘s tower records >w< i love japan!!!


i don’t know who he is, but i was amused 😀

i had a quiz and 2 presentations yesterday but they went smoothly so i was really relieved >w< i went to shibuya after class ended!


i found the venue for the concert without much difficulty *proud of herself*


the name of the concert hall reminds me of singapore hahah


the view from my seat. i was on the first floor. i couldn’t choose my seat because i bought my ticket from the convenience store… but it was not bad at all!


the screen ♥


>w< i was so excited!


the back of the concert hall


my seat


this is what i do when there’s nobody there to take photos for me >w<


i wore my nodame brooch, which i bought when i went to watch the movie a few weeks ago ♥ it’s knitted and cute!

the emcees for the night were the two announcers from fujiTV‘s mezamashi tv ^^

set list
beethoven’s symphony #7 [1st movement]
the moment the name of this piece was displayed on the screens, i was so happy i was shaking with excitement *O* it was epic, and as the music went up in a crescendo, i broke out in goosebumps ♥ this is probably the most significant piece in the whole nodame fandom, and it was really awesome to hear it live

まなざし☆デイドリーム manazashi☆daydream [opening theme of nodame cantabile finale anime]
piano : さかいゆう sakai yuu
the opening theme from the new anime season ^^ i’ve never heard of the singer’s name but his piano was good! accompanied by the strings section of the orchestra, they showed part of the opening animation from the new anime on the screens as well!

ravel’s bolero
AWESOME. just… AWESOME!!! ♥_♥ before they started, they had a fun mini session with the conductor introducing the different instruments in the orchestra by having each instrument play the main melody from bolero! it was really fun and educational! and the performance itself, was perfect ☆ the way it builds up slowly, with the volume gradually getting louder, is just unbeliavable.

intermission

rossini’s william tell overture
i was so happy to see the name of this piece on the screen!!! ♥ i didn’t think they were going to perform this, since it didn’t really stand out in the series, but i’m really glad, because this is a really fun piece! i could see the orchestra members having a lot of fun with this too. listening to this makes me want to play taiko no tatsujin :p

風と丘のバラード kaze to oka no ballad [closing theme of nodame cantabile finale anime]
vocal : real paradis
this didn’t really leave an impression on me hahah so sorry, i don’t have much to write about this one XD

chopin’s piano concerto #1 op.11 [1st movement]
a deep profound piece! a bit gloomy for me since i was in a really good mood but the pianist was actually a composer as well, and he was in charge of the soundtrack of the anime series!

tchaikovsky’s 1812
EPIC. beyond amazing!!! so triumphant! and when it reached the climax, the whole stage was bathed in gold lighting! really beautiful ;w; listening to this live was really fantastic! i have fallen in love with this piece ♥ i think a lot of people might have heard parts of this piece but do not know the name, myself included (before i watched the movie).

encore

dvorzak’s cello suite op.39 b.93 #2 “polka”
a nostalgic piece from the original drama series! hahah the song that plays in the background whenever chiaki thinks of his beloved viera-sensei lol :3 well-performed piece! very relaxing and soothing!

strauss’s radetsky march
a wonderful ending to a wonderful concert! as the emcees said, since it’s basically still the “new” year, the last song of the concert would definitely have to be this piece! it was super fun, the concert master was laughing while playing, the mangoose came out, including all the guests for the night, and everyone clapped their hands to the beat of the music! it was awesome, we clapped according to the music, softly when the music went pianissimo, and gradually harder and harder (crescendo) until it hit fortissimo! it ended with a burst of silver streamers ♥


i went down to get streamers, even though it was normal silver streamers hahah! i like collecting crap like that =w= we got free posters, pamphlets and a small piece of nodame stickers. they were selling stuff there again =w= i bought a notepad and mechanical pencil because my old one is more than 6 years old… (excuses, i know)


they handed a piece of paper with the set list written on it when we went out


a free mangoose cellphone sticker you can remove from the huge poster at the concert hall entrance… so cute! everyone was around the poster, trying to peel them off without tearing them lol


you can’t really see it, but i bought a nodame screen protector as well. the original screen protector on my cellphone was peeling off in one corner and my hands were itching to peel it off >o<
