Tracklist
01 - From Past to Present
Total Time:
4'34"

In Skyrim's soundtrack, From Past To Present is a fairly soft piece that features a full orchestra. It is clearly meant as background music for walking the world and enjoying what there is to see there, not an accompaniment to battle.

Kyle Landry's version of the track retains much of that feeling, but it does so with just a piano. He has adapted the song well for his instrument, and he plays it beautifully. In truth, I feel like his version plays with a wider emotional range than the original. He really punches home certain sections, but he backs off on others, and that's a good thing, because a straight piano cover of the tune could have fallen flat in less capable hands.
