tonight is the full moon of February 2019 A.D.

I don't know when I started noting the musical compositions that have been featured in what little I've read of the manga-series 'Nodame Cantabile', as published under Del Rey Books – in an English-language translation (the author's name is Tomoko Ninomiya); nevertheless, I reproduce those notes here: (please note that, the manga-series being a fictional work, the musical compositions that are mentioned in it may not exist outside of the manga)
