In Big O, what song does Dorothy always play on the piano? I know that it is by the composer Chopin, but I can't remember the name of it. It is not the one that she always wakes Roger up with. That much I know for sure. Thanks for your help in advance. Anime smile

There's two different songs she plays; the fast one she wakes him up with, and the slow one in "Legacy of Amadeus".

I and others think that the second one must be Chopin -- is that the one you're thinking of? A quick Google search tells me very little (no one seems to know), although some site in Japanese seems to be saying it's Prelude Op.28-No.15 by Chopin, "Raindrop".

Edit: Yes, it is. Click me to hear the late great Alfred Cortot playing it. (works if you have iTunes)

I wonder if you were referring to the same piece of music that I was -- you said Dorothy "always plays" it, but "Raindrop" is only played in "Legacy of Amadeus", albeit several times. When you said "always", I would have thought you meant the fast piece that she wakes him up with in a couple ep.s, but you said not that one. Hmm.
