RPGFan Music: Final Symphony ReviewA glorious orchestral performance of music from Final Fantasy VI, VII, and X.02.24.15 - 8:02 PM
It was less than two weeks ago when we posted our interview
with Thomas Böcker. While we covered several general topics, the imminent release of Final Symphony was the occasion for getting together in the first place.
Released yesterday, Final Symphony is a lengthy - at over 94 minutes - album of live performances by the London Symphony Orchestra, covering Final Fantasy VI, VII, and X. The LSO have performed these songs in Germany, the United Kingdom, Japan, Denmark, Sweden and Finland, starting in 2013. The album version was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, with Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu overseeing the production.
Any one of those names above should make you interested in this, but even so, RPGFan Music Maestro Stephen Meyerink has reviewed Final Symphony, and... we'll just say he may have liked it as much as I do in my repeated listenings. Read on to hear what he had to say about the album.
