This post is all about “Your Lie in April” songs.
A fantastic anime telling the story of a piano prodigy and a free-spirited violinist, “Your Lie in April” features a great variety of music from the original soundtrack to the classical pieces played by the characters.
Each episode in this anime has unique musical moments as characters prepare for the competition. Being an anime fan and a musician, I was dying to get the soundtrack album.
However, when I bought the 65-track original soundtrack album, I sadly realized that the album didn’t feature any of the classical pieces. Although the original soundtrack of the anime is fantastic as well, I thought there may be other people who’d like to know the names of the classical pieces played by the characters.
That’s why I compiled this list of all songs played in “Your Lie in April”. Along with the names of the pieces, you’ll find the links for streaming and musical scores in case you want to learn how to play them as I did!
If you prefer having all of these classical pieces from the anime in one CD, I’d recommend checking out this one.
