Angry Birds and Mario have devastatingly awful music. I hope there's going to be something worth listening to.
Beyond Good and Evil
LPO at the RFH... Possibly my favourite way to spend an evening in London.
One Winged Angel should definitely be on the list! Or at least a Nobuo Uematsu medley of some sort!
Final fantasy music is actually amazing.
I was going through my girlfriends iPod and found 'road to zanarkland' asked her if she'd played the games and discovered that she'd never heard of it but that she loved the music after a friend sent it to her.
That song is so unbelievably awesome I think I'd die if I saw an orchestra perform it.
One of the orchestras in the States did a FF concert a few years back; I remember because Square were asking for suggestions as to what pieces they should perform. The ever-useful wiki has info on some of them...
I love the Brahms influence of the FF ending themes; the ending theme (once 'Eyes on Me' has finished) from FF8 remains one of my favourite pieces of music ever.
There are games with far better music than Mario and Angry Birds, though. The Deus Ex opening theme orchestrated would be interesting. Pretty much anything from FF. Some of the Disgaea music could be excellent, too, but I imagine the games are too niche for enough people to care.
Don't forget Metal Gear Solid! That should be a concert on it's own.
As much as it's a great idea, it will be strange listening to these scores without the Sound effects playing also.
For example, Super Mario music is one thing but without the sound of mario jumping, collecting coins will be wierd.
I wonder if they can play any musical score featured in a game, or do they have to obtain explicit permission for it?
The Heroes of Might and Magic series has extraordinary music, especially the second one. It would require opera singers though.
Have they announced any intention of recording the concert and releasing it later on CD?
Video Games Live is the main games ost concert thingy, which is a global thing too, Has had Halo, C&C and loads loads more. That's the one i would like to go too.
If there is nothing by Nobuo Uematsu then it isn't worth attending.
A fleeting dream is also one hell of a song.
Video Games Live is awesome. Saw it here in Saskatchewan year before last, and it rocked! They didn't do the "Myst" set, but Halo, live, with a full philharmonic orchestra and choir is awesome. And the "Play along" Guitar Hero and "Mario Brothers" was pretty damned cool too.
Why has nobody mentioned Zelda?!
I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that Zelda is in there, as is Mario, Battlefield and many other pieces. How do I know? I interviewed the conductor! Follow my link to watch it now! http://youtu.be/QidvCm_5kxg
Hi all, Julia from the LPO here.
Just a heads up that alongside Angry Birds and Super Mario, there’s more to Video Game Heroes! Zelda, Metal Gear Solid, Halo and Final Fantasy are all getting the London Philharmonic treatment and there are exclusive versions of Dead Space and the award-winning 007: Blood Stone, rewritten specially by composers Jason Graves and Richard Jacques. What else would be on your ideal playlist?
