Final Symphony II, a concert featuring an all-new programme of Final Fantasy music, is coming to London's Barbican concert hall on September 12, Merregnon Studios has announced.
Performed by the world famous London Symphony Orchestra, the concert will feature some of composer Nobuo Uematsu's most treasured themes from Final Fantasy V, VIII and IX. The new concert will also present a suite of music from Final Fantasy XIII, arranged by original composer Masashi Hamauzu himself.
Composer Nobuo Uematsu will be in attendance and will also take part in a ticketed, pre-concert talk in which he'll discuss his musical career and influences while answering questions from the audience.
"It's wonderful that we're able to return to the Barbican with such an exciting new programme of music," said Final Symphony II producer, Thomas Böcker. "Performing the original Final Symphony with the LSO back in 2013 was a musical dream come true, and recording the album at Abbey Road Studios was the icing on the cake. The arrangers, Roger Wanamo and Jonne Valtonen - plus Masashi Hamauzu - have been working very hard on something extremely special and we think it's exactly what fans of Final Fantasy have been waiting for!"
Tickets for Final Symphony II go on sale tomorrow, March 20, from 10am, with prices ranging from £30 to £65. Tickets for the talk by Nobuo Uematsu go on sale at the same time priced £10. To book tickets visit the official concert site: lso.co.uk/finalsymphonyii.
