In order to convey her feelings to Kōsei, the pianist she once looked up to, Emi gives a passionate performance of Chopin's Étude Op. 25, No. 11. She heads straight for Kōsei right after leaving the stage, only to find herself bereft of words. After all, she had just poured all of her feelings into her playing. Kōsei heads for the stage. As he sits before the piano, the ghost of his dead mother speaks to him, initiating Kōsei’s musical journey as he confronts his past.
