Hikaru Nara – Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso OP [piano]

=== AUSTRALIA + NEW ZEALAND TOUR 2018 ===

I’m going on tour with Theishter in October! We’ll be playing on TWO pianos in SIX cities in Australia and New Zealand. We will play solos, duets and all the classics from anime such as Attack on Titan, Studio Ghibli, Tokyo Ghoul and more. Don’t miss out on the experience of a lifetime.

=======================================

The long awaited piano cover is finally here!
Hikaru Nara by Goose House!

Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (your lie in April) is definitely one of the best anime series of this fall anime season 2014, and of course, I am not missing out the awesome OP song as well!

Initially I wanted to make a very sophisticated and virtuosic “piano fantasy about a theme of a classical music anime” – transcription, because it fits quite well with the classical music topic of the anime.
I attempted to integrate the Schumann piano concerto in A-major with Hikaru Nara (and changing the time signature from 4/4 to 3/4), but I gave up the idea halfway, since it didn’t sound very good.

That’s why I started from the scratch again and made a slower, “ballad-version” instead. I took the main motif from the chorus and created many “original passages” – mosty noticeable in the beginning part and the build-up transitions before the chorus.

This piano version of Hikaru Nara is also more melancholic than the original upbeat Hikaru Nara song by Goose House, because of the slow beginning and slow ending.

I think, you could regard this as a “summary” of my transcription activity of this year. The first piano medley with sheets, (Nagi no asukara), the first piano cover with “classical ending” (owari no sekai kara), the first live concert in three major asian cities (animenz live!) …. I had many firsts this year and I gained a lot of valuable experiences.

It was truly a fantastic year for me.
Therefore:
Thank you, everyone, for your support!
I wouldn’t have come so far without your valuable feedback!

Last but not least, this is also my final transcription for this year.
I will return next year again, as usual, when the new anime season starts.

Well then, I hope you enjoyed the “ballad” version of Hikaru Nara!

See you again!
