Final Fantasy VI With A Full Orchestra Is Damn Majestic

Final Fantasy VI With a Full Orchestra is Damn Majestic

You can now listen to a recording of Final Fantasy VI's music made by the The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. It's stirring stuff.

The recording was made in June but has only just found its way online. It's a new orchestration of music from the game arranged as 'symphonic poem' called Born with the Gift of Magic. You can watch the full performance here if you like smart evening wear and trumpets (which I recommend as it just looks so awesome), or just listen to the audio below.

    FFVI has the most bland music in the series for me. I only like 3-4 tracks and i think the rest are utter garbage. Screw me, right?

      Yeah screw you! Nah, different strokes I guess. I've never even played 6, but I've fallen in love with the OST from originally hearing a few songs from the Black Mages/Earthbound Papas and the Distant Worlds albums. I've now listened to the whole soundtrack, and yeah some songs are pretty gimmicky and weird but it's overall pretty high quality. But hey, music taste is subjective, don't feel bad!

    Sooo... when are we going to have a VGM concert in Australia ? (Melbourne pretty please).

      No, Perth! I'm sick of Melbourne getting the good stuff.

      Where have you been?? Video games unplugged performed by MSO!
