From the producers of the internationally acclaimed concert tour Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY, comes an entirely new FINAL FANTASY musical experience to be presented at London’s historic LSO St. Luke’s Jerwood Hall (161 Old St.).

A New World: intimate music from FINAL FANTASY features the stirring compositions of composer Nobuo Uematsu and other composers from the FINAL FANTASY video game series, including a special performance of FINAL FANTASY VI: Dark World performed by Uematsu and Grammy® Award-winning Music Director Arnie Roth with string ensemble.

For A New World: intimate music from FINAL FANTASY, Music Director Roth has devised a reimagined FINAL FANTASY concert: a pure live music experience specifically designed to take advantage of the superb acoustics and musical intimacy of LSO St. Luke’s 400-seat live performance venue, featuring world premiere arrangements for string quartet, piano and guitar solos, duos, trios and other mixed groups of instrumentalists.

“In this unique new concert experience, A New World will introduce audiences to a new selection of beloved music from FINAL FANTASY on a personal and intimate scale that has yet to be experienced.”

Joining Roth on stage will be an ensemble of world-class musicians including Schallplattenkritik Award-nominated Navarra String Quartet, and Steinway Piano Competition-winner Benyamin Nuss (known to FINAL FANTASY fans for his performances as part of the Distant Worlds concerts, and for his recent solo recording of Uematsu compositions).

A New World: intimate music from FINAL FANTASY will be presented at London’s historic LSO St. Luke’s Jerwood Hall, Saturday, Feb. 15 at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets for the concert only are priced at £50. 60 VIP tickets for both concerts, which include admission to a post-concert meet and greet with composer Nobuo Uematsu and conductor Arnie Roth are priced at £100.
