From StarryHeaven:

The era is the Taisho period (1912-1926). Kaibara Aria, who wishes to become a pianist, takes the examination to become a preparatory student at the Tokyo School of Music. The passion in her playing overwhelms her surroundings, like a ripple on the surface of water. It was then that Aria had an encounter with the son of the Nishimikado noble family, Natsuo, and learns a shocking truth... The youth of the maiden blessed by the god of music in this stream of musical romance!

I actually thought I wasn't going to like this manga, because most of Akaishi Michiyo sensei's work have a very good plot and the main characters are all strong, but the romance isn't that warm and romantic, and they lack something.
But this one is different. This manga actually made me want to read it more and more and it caught my attention. The plot is good and the romance is great! I just love it! It is worth reading it, if you like romance.

this is definitely a good shoujo manga. old style love story, i've read all akaishi michiyo's manga and this is my fav after alpen rose and saint.
the story goes smoothly and give the readers warm feeling. the main character is a strong girl and not annoying which is good. there is a hint of incest in the beginning of story, but
Spoiler (highlight to view)
later in the 5 volume reveal that they are not related by blood

it's hard to find this kind of romance manga this day. I have a feeling that this manga will be long running, at least more 5 or 6 volume.
anyway, this is too good to be missed. i recommend it to those who like an old romance manga.

Already, I can feel the plot's wonderous !! Aria was just my type of character that manga heroine should, these days, most manga just have a typical weak / crybaby / undecide / shy / timid / boring heroines ... I likes strong girls character anyway with talent and stuff, not ones that spend all their times on getting the most popular guy's ( or their cush's ) love !!! Don't any one angree?
Also, not all shoujo manga should concentrate on romance, sometimes a little of realistic / dramtic event would be colourful !!
Anyways, one of the best manga I've read. I recommend that everyone should give it a go, boys or girls.

Though one thing, there are a possibility of sibling love ( incest ), but not for sure ... She / he might turn out to be someone else daughter/ son.
