Synopsis

Based on the hit comic book by Tomoko Ninomiya, this is a fun-filled quirky romantic story of two very opposite people.

Megumi Noda, or “Nodame” is a piano student at Momogaoka College of Music. An extremely talented pianist who wants to be a kindergarten teacher, she prefers playing by ear rather than reading the music score. She is messy and disorganized, takes baths several days apart and loves to eat, sometimes stealing her friend’s lunchbox when it is filled with delicacies.

Shinichi Chiaki, is Momogaoka’s top student. Born into a musical family, he is talented in piano and violin and has secret ambitions to become a conductor. An arrogant multi-lingual perfectionist who once lived abroad in the music capitals of the world as a young boy, he feels mired in Japan because of a childhood phobia.

They meet by accident. Nodame quickly falls in love, but it takes much longer for Chiaki to even begin to appreciate Nodame’s unusual qualities. Their relationship causes them both to develop and grow. Because of Nodame, Chiaki got the opportunity to lead a student orchestra and begins to have a broader appreciation of people’s musical abilities. Because of Chiaki, Nodame faces her fears and enters a piano competition. Opportunities open up as both begin taking risks, stretching themselves far more than they ever thought possible.

Notes

  • Since by the time the drama was made the manga version of Nodame Cantabile was incomplete, the live drama version only covers up to volume 9.
  • One of the show’s highlight performances, is where the S Orchestra performing Rhapsody in Blue in their own unique style. This happens in episode 5 of the Jdrama when Chiaki is tapped to play with A Orchestra. Feeling abandoned, concertmaster Mine – always the rocker – takes the reigns and declares a “different” interpretation of the Gershwin piece.
  • Daisuke Mogi was the musical director for Nodame Cantabile and all the episodes feature original music by Takayuki Hattori along with several classical music pieces. The orchestral music was performed by the Nodame Orchestra which consisted of members who were specially selected for the live-action drama with professional support from the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra.The Orchestra was conducted by James DePriest, Permanent Conductor of the Tokyo Metropolitan Orchestra. He would later have his name and likeness used in the Nodame storyline as the musical director of the fictional Roux-Marlet Orchestra.

    The opening theme for both the drama series and special was the First movement (“Andante Cantabile”) from Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, and the ending theme was Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, both performed by the Nodame Orchestra conducted by Toshiaki Umeda.
