Eto sensei: Mostly you.. don’t like Schubert at all, do you?? So why did you choose Schubert for the first stage (of the Maradonna piano competition)?
Nodame: Why? Somehow… um.. it’s like wanting to try dating the type of guy whom I have never dated before..
Yes, that kind of feeling..
Eto sensei: ?!!? ARE YOU STUPID??? DATE A GUY WHOSE TYPE YOU HAVE DATED BEFORE!!!
lol moments from nodame. so forget the cute guy from hungarian (who sadly is in none of my classes), i have a new crush: none other than the first prize winner of the ferenc liszt piano competition. England sent one representative in the form of alexander ullman. we heard him play liszt’s piano concerto no. 2 in the gala finale of the piano competition tonight and it was a sight to behold. he’s so.. diffident in his playing but also very technically excellent. much better than the russian and the hungarian anyway. he’s only 20! and so cute and meek and shy and gentle. no weird facial tics or arm sweeping during his playing. just plain old liszt the way it’s meant to be played by a professional. he baisse-d the girl who gave bouquets to the winner and was so adorable <3 i wish i were the flower girl
