Uematsu Working on Ultimate Final Fantasy Album


After the huge success of the Final Symphony concerts, Merregnon Studios and legendary composer Nobuo Uematsu are working on a new Final Fantasy album.

Coming together with the fantastic London Symphony Orchestra, they are working on a Final Symphony album, which will represent new benchmark in video game music production. Befitting both the composer and orchestra behind the album, Final Symphony will be completely recorded, mixed and mastered at London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios, with Nobuo Uematsu on hand to personally supervise the album’s production. Also featuring the talents of conductor Eckehard Stier and solo pianist Katharina Treutler, both of whom delighted audiences during the award-winning tour, Final Symphony is sure to enchant music fans when it launches early next year.

It has also been revealed that UK radio station Classic FM, the biggest classical music radio station in the world, will exclusively broadcast part of the Final Symphony recording as a world-premiere before the album’s launch next year. Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu stated:

It is always an honour to hear my work being performed live on stage, but in bringing Final Symphony to Abbey Road Studios I hope that many more people will now be able to enjoy the outstanding arrangements that Merregnon Studios has become famous for. To work with the London Symphony Orchestra in a studio that has played host to many of my own personal, musical heroes will be a very special experience.

Merregnon Studios’ Thomas Böcker, producer of Final Symphony added:

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 last year – 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.
