Related Nodame Cantabile Soundtrack CD Releases


Because of the various versions of Nodame Cantabile CDs available , I'm sure many fans have experienced some confusion as to which one is what,so I'm posting this neat and informative post I found at the JDrama Theme Songs & OST [requests & discussion] at JDorama.com.


Nodame Cantabile OST
[2006-12-06]
All the original compositions (i.e. not classical pieces) used in the drama.

Nodame Cantabile Anime OST
[2007-03-21]
All the original compositions (i.e. not classical pieces) used in the anime.

Nodame Cantabile Best 100
[2007-01-01]
A number of classical music pieces featured in the drama/anime. Movements that were not performed in the drama/anime were also featured, but not necessarily the complete suite. These were recordings of famous artists/orchestras and were not the ones heard in the drama/anime.



Nodame Cantabile - La Folle Journee Selection
[2007-04-18]
The complete version of some of the music featured in the drama and anime. Include movements and parts that were not performed in the drama/anime.

Nodame Cantabile Mongoose Box
[2007-06-27]
Almost all the music featured in the drama/anime. The difference between this set and all other sets is that the music here was performed by the Nodame Orchestra and the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra - i.e. the exact version used in the drama/anime.


Nodame Cantabile Character Selection - Chiaki
[2006-12-06]
Several pieces of music 'played' or 'conducted' by Chiaki.


Nodame Cantabile Character Selection - Nodame
[2006-12-13]
Several pieces of music 'played' or 'chosen' by Nodame.


Nodame Cantabile Character Selection - Milch & Fellows
[2006-12-13]
Several pieces of music 'conducted' or 'chosen' by Streseman.

Orchestra de Nodame Live
[2006-11-15]
A collection of classical music pieces 'performed' in the drama, including the hiccups - Nodame screwing up in the first 2 measures of the Mozart sonata for 2 pianos etc.


Orchestra de Nodame Story
[2007-02-21]
More complete and structured version of the above. Include music from the anime.

The poster of the above list also had this to say about all the releases:

Whether you want to collect all of the above is up to you. To be honest I did not purchase all - I consider the Character Selections a rip-off and only purchased the Nodame selection.



I hope this post has been helpful as a guide for you on deciding which Nodame Cantabile CD you'd like to buy.^^

So does this mean that if I wanted the same version that was heard in the anime, then I should go for either the 'Mongoose set' or 'Orchestra de Nodame'?

Also how do you think the 'Nodame Orchestra' compares to the recordings by the various world orchestras?

I know the second question might be tough to answer so I beg your indulgence.

It will not truly have success, I feel like this.

I'm kind of late bloomer for a fan of Nodame Cantabile. But I already have been loving classical musics long before this drama. You've done great job by introducing and giving information as deep and thoroughly as possible, which I like it best amongst the other same sites.

you're blessed with great talent.
