London Symphonic Orchestra Releases Final Fantasy Album “Final Symphony”

Final Symphony

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.

About Tom Smith
Some say he's fuelled on nothing but energy drinks, and that when he visits Japan, he spends the whole time engaging the ground in an all too familiar way. But what we do know is that his words on the country's entertainment and culture find their way into NEO Magazine on a monthly basis, while everything else finds its way here. Be it quirky news item from the Land of the Rising Sun, or a story so gruesome it'd be rude not to pass it on, you'll find it here along with his general posts about life, work and most importantly play. And yes, he has had articles printed in the likes of MCV, GamesMaster, 360 Gamer and more, thanks for noticing.
