This program features Eric Roth directing string quartets, pianist Benyamin Nuss, duos, trios and other mixed groups of instrumentalists to produce an immediate and personal encounter with the extraordinary FINAL FANTASY musical themes, characters, and settings.
The new FINAL FANTASY arrangements are written by Arnie Roth and Eric Roth of AWR Music Productions, the critically-hailed team behind the Distant Worlds concerts, with additional arrangements by Shiro Hamaguchi, Uematsu’s longtime collaborator on the FINAL FANTASY video game soundtrack recordings. Special guest composer Naoshi Mizuta will be in attendance!
