Final Symphony: London Symphony Orchestra Tribute to Final Fantasy

By Heath | March 5, 2015 at 11:41 pm

The London Symphony Orchestra has put together a symphonic tribute to Final Fantasy VI, VII, and X. Taking Nobuo Uematsu’s original compositions and blending them with a full-on symphony treatment, this album “Final Symphony” is more than just arranged versions of Final Fantasy music tracks. It’s actually in the old symphony style, where this action is like a full-on musical story. Take a look at the full track list below the embedded video and you’ll see what I mean — symphonies in three movements that add up to, like half an hour, for the music of one game from the series. And I, for one, think that’s kinda cool.

Full track list:
0:00 – Fantasy Overture (Circle within a Circle within a Circle)
4:08 – Final Fantasy VI (Symphonic Poem: Born with the Gift of Magic)
22:16 – Final Fantasy X (Piano Concerto): I. Zanarkand
30:34 – Final Fantasy X (Piano Concerto): II. Inori
37:10 – Final Fantasy X (Piano Concerto): III. Kessen
41:31 – Encore: Final Fantasy X (Suteki da ne)
45:14 – Final Fantasy VII (Symphony in Three Movements): I. Nibelheim Incident
58:56 – Final Fantasy VII (Symphony in Three Movements): II. Words Drowned by Fireworks
1:12:33 – Final Fantasy VII (Symphony in Three Movements): III. The Planet’s Crisis
1:26:35 – Encore: Final Fantasy VII (Continue?)
1:31:15 – Encore: Final Fantasy Series (Fight, Fight, Fight!)
