I left a comment to this article, because I was just so happy about it. Afterwards, another commenter made the following statement:

"Some musicians grew up with the Suzuki method. I grew up with the Uematsu method."

Friggin' love it.

Greatest comment I've read so far this month. Great comment as well Ramza (Plus one reccommend ;))

Fascinating article, it reminds me of all the Game composers that borrows bits and pieces from "classical" music to inject into their own compositions. In essence, you are are getting "classical" music drilled into you whether you are aware of it or not. I won't even go into the different game music and what probable "classical" compositions they borrowed from, but one game track always reminds me of Verdi's Requiem Libera me [starting at 1:26] is the introduction choral singing from Duodecim's Cantata Mortis [0:39-1:06]

If anyone hasn't listening to Verdi's Requiem, you're missing out. :3
