CLASSICAL | "Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY"


Few video game franchises are as enduring or iconic as Final Fantasy. The same can be said for the series' musical scores—the first nine of which were solely composed by Nobuo Uematsu (he also contributed to the music in subsequent games from the series). The Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra last performed music from the series in 2015, with great success. Led by conductor Arnie Roth, the ensemble will again interpret Uematsu's streamlined orchestration and effortless, wind-blown melodies this coming Tuesday at Kodak Hall. And once again, the performance will feature HD video from the series' developers Square Enix, melding the rich visual world of Final Fantasy with evocative symphonic colors.

The RPO will perform "Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY" on Tuesday, September 25, 8 p.m. at Eastman Theatre's Kodak Hall, 60 Gibbs Street. $24-$106. 454-2100.;
