Febian Reza Pane performed the limited promotional piano arrangement for Radiant Historia which includes five tracks. Typically, I thoroughly enjoy piano arrangements for any RPG's soundtrack, and often enjoy them much more than the originals. However, whether or not Shimomura's intended format is not to be tampered with I cannot say. Pane's performance is good, but does not quite hit the mark the way Shimomura does. I compared each track with the original soundtrack, and what I found was an odd fluctuation of passion and mediocrity. For die-hard piano enthusiasts or intended collectors of Radiant Historia memorabilia, this is a fine purchase, but no one should consider this item an obligation.
