From KEFI:

A tranquil tale about two boys from very different upbringings. On one hand you have Kai, born as the son of a prostitute, who's been playing the abandoned piano in the forest near his home ever since he was young. And on the other you have Shuhei, practically breast-fed by the piano as the son of a family of prestigious pianists. Yet it is their common bond with the piano that eventually intertwines their paths in life.

Piano no Mori won a Grand Prize from 2008 [12th] Japan Media Arts Festival.

I saw the anime before I could find this manga. It's a beautiful story about a talented boy who just loves "his" piano, lost in the forest. But music is more demanding than just being gifted and you learn about how hard it is to learn an instrument in hope that someday you might reach the top. So we follow the parralel paths of a gifted boy Vs a hard working boy. Music lovers will love it. And BTW, if you like this one, you'll also like Nodame Cantabile! :-)
