Merregnon Studios’ Thomas Böcker, producer of Final Symphony stated:
For me, this album marks the ultimate video game music production, It was an absolute musical privilege to work with the London Symphony Orchestra on Final Symphony in 2013 – the orchestra’s first ever live performance of music from a video game – and to have them back in the same room as Nobuo Uematsu at Abbey Road Studios is like hitting the video game music jackpot. This album will showcase video game music at its very highest quality and I can’t wait to share it with the world.
It comes including arrangements from Final Fantasy VI, VII and X, with exclusive arrangements penned by Masashi Hamauzu, Jonne Valtonen and Roger Wanamo. Let us know if you will be getting it via the comment section below.
