I believe the lie was that Kaori lied about being in love with Watari.

Thanks to this MAL post I just found out it's Ludwig van Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 14 in C-sharp minor "Quasi una fantasia", popularly known as the Moonlight Sonata's third and last movement, Presto Agitato. Here's a video of the music, played by Wilhelm Kempff. And here another video by one Brandon Ethridge, filmed from the top. This ones makes it look -...

Adding to my previous comment on the question, the official website now has a page for the "Your Lie in April original song & soundtrack" (「四月は君の嘘 ORIGINAL SONG & SOUNDTRACK」). They have a full listing of the soundtrack there, but you cannot listen to it, nor even preview it. So I did a quick search, and found this Amazon.co.jp page for the cd, where ...

Well, technically the "lie" was Even very early on in Chapter 3 page 5: Also much later on, The anime is quite filial to the manga, as the events are followed quite closely. Any variation comes from the differences in emphasis between certain scenes but is outside the scope of this question. In summary, the manga hints as much as the anime about how ...

There is a CD release (ESCL-4302) with all the non-original tracks featured in the anime. You can find more info about it on VGMDB. As you can see there, the violinist is Yuna Shinohara (篠原悠那) and the pianists are Tomoki Sakata (阪田知樹) and Eriko Kawachi (河地恵理子). VGMDB also provides scans of the booklet, here is the page showing this information (red ...

I think what separates Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun and Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso (Your Lie in April) is the intent. Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun, as senshin commented, was most likely comedic exaggeration. On the other hand, Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso used that vehicle law as an opportunity to show the strength of the protagonist and the recurring characters' ...

Both of the words "Elohim" and "Essaim" could be meaning a variety of things. But my speculation goes as follows: From this Reddit thread: A similar phrase occurs in the Book of Black Magic and in the Italian Il Grand Grimoire. A couple translations and transcriptions later, we end up with this. "Eloim" is "God" or "Powers", "Essaim" might ...

Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, 3rd movement.

At the end of the episode, the photo that you mention can be seen sitting on Kousei's desk. Kaori treasured it because it was probably her only photo containing her and Kousei or even her only photo of Kousei. It is a photo of young Kousei and Kaori plus another unnamed girl(most possible Kaori's friend), probably after one of Karima's contests. Kaori was, ...

Amazon Japan has the Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso soundtrack available for download: "Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso ORIGINAL SONG & SOUNDTRACK". It's an MP3 download (so not lossless, unfortunately). The whole OST is 3000 JPY (~25 USD), or you can buy individual songs (but this quickly becomes more expensive than just buying the album). The OST does not appear to ...

It's a coping/protection mechanism - when he plays the piano, his negative feelings from his past resurface, and his mind blocks him from hearing sounds that have a negative (as in Psychological Conditioning Principals) association in his mind. How exactly this manifests for him is made fairly clear in the anime - if you watch the scenes again where he's ...

In my theory, her disease is Friedreich's Ataxia. Symptons begins between the ages of 5 to 15. Muscle weakness in the arms and legs and loss of coordination are symptons. It causes heart disorders. In Episode 20, she may be having a severe and painful tachycardia, and a following cardiac arrest. The surgery may be to implant a pacemaker, but another arrest ...

It is "Saint-Saëns, Camille Introduction + Rondo Capriccioso". It was also used in Episode 4, when Kousei and Kaori perform together for the first time. I believe the segment we hear here begins around the time that Kaori starts playing the violin again after stopping for Kousei. If you remember, she encouraged him to start again. We hear a lot of Kaori's ...

There are two "lies" that I can see in the last parts:

As requested, while this is not a conclusive answer, we might never know unless there is more information released. The manga only specifies the piece, but never details the performances of the characters musically. The characters might gush over how "lively" or "beautiful" it sounds, but nobody ever talks in technical terms, much less describe sections of ...

There was the KimiUso Staff Talk Event at 2015/05/16 in Tokyo Japan. "The Miracle” was explained by the staffs of KimiUso in this event. http://live.nicovideo.jp/watch/lv218533566 We can not watch this live streaming already, but we can read the viewer's blog. I reprint and translate the important point. Japanese 宣伝Aさんいわく、「何も考えてなかった」と。 English PR ...

Perhaps this video will help you. If this is indeed the song you are looking for I'm afraid I can't help further than this. I tried to find the original song but I failed. It seems that the name given to the song in this particular video is not its original name, as the description points out: I decided to give a name for this BGM, as the title would've ...

It's a chant common in anime and manga (For example, it occurs in Gugure! Kokkuri-san ep12 this season), if recited 3 times can give good luck or summon demons. Its origin comes from The Grand Grimoire, it's "The secret of the Black hen, a secret without which one can not count on the success of any cabala". Elohim as mentioned is Hebrew for God, Essaim ...

The reason is because of the psychological trauma he suffered from being forced by his mother to play exactly as the notes book dictates and punish him for every wrong notes. He felt frustated as even when he did his best and won competition by competition, her mother still wasn't satisfied as he still made a few mistakes here and there, despite already ...

My hypothesis is that she is suffering from advanced multiple sclerosis. The extreme exhaustion along with the loss of motor function in her legs (Episode 15-Liar) and hands (Episode 21- Snow) are her most obvious symptoms. However, the risky operation she undergoes is the only thing that make me question my theory.

The real lie is that she never got to play with him again. As a child, she fell in love with him when she saw him play, and her dream was to one day stand by his side and play along with him. She managed to achieve her dream and play on the same stage along with him. After that she promised to do it again with him, but she died before it could happen.

Elohim(אֱלֹהִים) is a Hebrew word that means either 1) "gods" in the plural, or 2) "God." "El" (אֵלִי) and "Eloi" (אֶלֹהִי) are "God," and the "-him" suffix (הִים) makes it plural. So it would literally mean "gods" in the plural; however, it is also used in the specific case of referring to the monotheistic Judeo-Christian God. It is found 2602 times in the ...

It seems to be: Elgar: Violin Sonata in E minor, Op 82 Vengerov Or [エルガー: ヴァイオリン・ソナタ ホ短調 作品82 ヴェンゲーロフ] if in Japanese. Here is a link to the piece: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOutOaSMHZ4

The piece is called "31 - Kimi ga Iru" It is in the OST album for the anime, Disc 1. Followed by "05 - Kirameki ~Kousei to Kaori no Ensou Ver.~" from the ED single "Kirameki" album. So basically it starts off as Kimi ga Iru, then Kirameki chimes in. The piece before that is "17 - Kouiu Kimochi wo Nante Itta Kana" if you're interested.

The song is called 'Again' - It's Track 26 of Soundtrack CD1, if I recall correctly. Here is the link to an youtube video of the song, should you need one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKeI8eYtWyQ

I'm assuming you're referring to the piece Kousei plays at the very end of the episode; this is the only instance where Kousei plays the piano in ep. 13 after his "Liebesleid" performance. I recognised this as a Chopin composition, possibly a nocturne. After some searching, I found that this was Nocturne no. 2 in D-flat minor, op. 27. (Score, recording by ...

As with this other answer, I was able to find the right song in this Amazon.co.jp page for the soundtrack, where you can listen to a 30-second preview of every song. The song in question is track 26 of the first CD, アゲイン — meaning "again," what Kaori says at minute 15:04 to Kousei. You can buy the song individually here. You can buy the full album in the ...

Here's the VGMdb page for the soundtrack album: http://vgmdb.net/album/49046. Knock yourself out. If you happen to want the piano pieces, I believe all of them are on this album: http://vgmdb.net/album/47707. The wikia that @Zereges linked in this comment appears to contain much the same information, if you prefer that.

I haven't got the episode in front of me to confirm, but I'm pretty sure you're talking about "Kirameki (Kaori and Kousei version)", a piano/violin duet version of the first ending theme. Here is a YouTube version you can check against.
