Concerto for Videogames

by Andrew Stern · , 4:32 pm

Last August in Leipzig, Germany was apparently the world’s first symphony concert to feature music from popular Western and Japanese videogame soundtracks, including Final Fantasy, Battlefield 1942, and Zelda Wind Walker. Andy Brick conducted the Czech National Orchestra. (via Game Developer Magazine)

    “World’s first” seems like a misnomer. I guess what they’re trying to say is “World’s first to feature music from Japanese AND Western game soundtracks”, because otherwise it’d be completely incorrect as such symphony shows have been done in Japan before. On numerous occassions.
