Gaming concert production company Merregnon Studios announced a brand new album of musical arrangements from the Final Fantasy video game titled Final Symphony. This new album will be based on the sell-out concert tour of the same name and will see a global release as a digital download on February 23rd.
Performed by the world-famous London Symphony Orchestra in the presence of composer Nobuo Uematsu, and completely recorded, mixed and mastered at London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios, this album represents a new benchmark in video game music production.
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 everywhere.
Producer of Final Symphony, Merregnon Studios’ Thomas Böcker, commented: “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.”
Final Symphony, first performed in May 2013, is an officially licensed series of concerts featuring symphonic music from the video games Final Fantasy VI, VII and X, with exclusive arrangements penned by Masashi Hamauzu, Jonne Valtonen and Roger Wanamo. The orchestral concert series enjoyed sold-out success in Germany, United Kingdom, Japan, Denmark, Sweden and Finland.
