Internationally famous London Symphony Orchestra and London Symphony Chorus join forces to present thrilling new video game music concert on July 13th, 2014
Fans of Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda series are set for a musical treat once again as Symphonic Legends London, a concert dedicated to music from the widely appreciated role-playing adventure series, will take place at London’s Barbican on July 13th, 2014.
Featuring music performed courtesy of Nintendo, Symphonic Legends London wants to take concertgoers on an unforgettable journey through some of The Legend of Zelda’s best-loved themes. With new and revised scores by renowned video game arrangers, Jonne Valtonen and Roger Wanamo, Symphonic Legends London is set to squeeze every last musical drop of action, adventure, romance, heartbreak and heroics from soundtracks to games such as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. The concert also features the world premiere of a brand new Overture of music from The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, sending listeners’ imagination soaring to the skies and beyond.
Adding to the excitement, Symphonic Legends London boasts an unprecedented ensemble of musicians and singers on stage for a video game concert. Joining the world famous London Symphony Orchestra – returning to the world of video games following the success of the sell-out, Final Symphony concert in May 2013 – will be the majestic London Symphony Chorus. Encompassing well over 200 musicians and choristers, Symphonic Legends London is set to bring powerful and majestic talent of The Legend of Zelda series to musical life in emphatic style.
Symphonic Legends London is being developed by the award winning Merregnon Studios, the world’s leading video game concert production company. With over 10 years of experience in the genre, Merregnon Studios helped debut the first ever orchestral performance of music from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker in Germany in 2003, as well as being the first company ever to work with the prestigious London Symphony Orchestra on a video game concert.
Thomas Böcker, Producer of Symphonic Legends London: “We’re so excited to be working with the London Symphony Orchestra on a video game concert again. Performing together with the London Symphony Chorus, it will be an unforgettable night for everybody, whether you’re a keen The Legend of Zelda fan or simply a lover of amazing music.”
Gareth Davies, Principle Flautist with the LSO: “Working on our first video game concert earlier this year was a fantastically exciting experience. The fans who attended the Final Symphony concert were one of the most attentive audiences I’ve ever played for and it is a delight to be playing Jonne Valtonen and Roger Wanamo’s superb arrangements again.”
