Fans of Final Fantasy’s fantastic soundtrack, rejoice. Final Symphony, a new album compiling themes from Final Fantasy VI, VII and X performed by the London Symphony Orchestra, is available to download from today.
The 11-track album, recorded with legendary composer Nobuo Uematsu at London’s Abbey Road Studios, was arranged and composed as part of a worldwide concert tour over the past two years, which is set to return to London again this year.
“I never imagined twenty years ago that I would be able to work with the London Symphony Orchestra,” comments Uematsu. “It’s just wonderful that there are so many people who like Final Fantasy music; and to have it arranged by such incredibly talented people, Final Symphony is like a dream come true!”
Thomas Böcker, producer of Final Symphony added: “This album is a once in a lifetime production. The world’s greatest video game composer, orchestra and recording studio have all come together to create something truly remarkable out of the amazing arrangements. This is the music of Final Fantasy as you’ve never heard it before.”
Final Symphony is out now from iTunes.
