Has anyone ever heard of that album the Tokyo Philharmonic (or whatever the Tokyo Symphony is called) put out in Japan where they played the themes to the (then) most popular video games?

I think the songs included on the then list were Mario, Metroid, Zelda, and Final Fantasy, with maybe a few others.

In retrospect, those were all Nintendo titles at the time. Huh.

But anyway, I haven't been able to find that CD anywhere, and I'd pay big bucks to get it.

Anyone? Bueller?


I remember that. I know I heard a couple tracks from that before (Zelda Dark World theme). I haven't seen the CD anywhere, but you might be able to find some of the tracks using your favourite P2P tool. Not that I'm advocating such a thing, I'm just saying.

A search for "final fantasy orchestra" or any variation of "orchestra" or "arranged" or "piano" is guaranteed to return many results.

(The circle is now complete: I'm posting a response to a post about a Metafilter post that I posted. hmm)


After a quick search, I think this might be what you are searching for. Good luck trying to find it!


Actually, that's the one! And I can't believe it's arranged (in part) by Yoko Kanno (now famous for the Cowboy Bebop and Macross Plus music)! I had no idea she was famous back then. I wish I had the money to buy it, but the website says it goes for $200 on ebay, and I already have the Mario symphony from it. Now I just need the Zelda's and I'm set.


I'd like to see more comments


Wow $200 on ebay, hm, need to put it in christmas gift list.
