Blipico's "Final Symphony II" concert report is up!

The pre-concert talk is easily the best thing about this. I've read plenty of interviews with Uematsu in my day, but this is one of the best.

We announced earlier this weekend that the ancient mystery of "who arranged FFVI Piano" is revealed? We got an answer, and this pre-concert report goes into great detail about how originally the performer *was* going to improvise the whole album (thus performer = arranger), but it proved too challenging, so they canceled the recording session, flew back to Japan (from Italy), asked Sagisu to arrange, and then Reiko Nomura recorded those arrangements.

But there's plenty more interesting stuff in the article as well, including Uematsu's (non)-involvement with the FFVII PS4 remake.
