After a long summer of concerts, gigs, and wonderful experiences with music, time to post something new since I've been able to write something new. Today, I'd like to share with you a re-work of something from another composer...call it a tribute, and in this case to Nobuo Uematsu, composer for Square-Enix software house creator of the Final Fantasy saga soundtrack, something which inspired me a lot during this years, and to Johann Sebastian Bach, in my opinion, the best composer and innovator ever. I took 4 main themes from the FF saga and re-worked them in the form of the "prelude and fugue" for piano solo.
Themes used are:
Opening (FFVII) - used as the introduction of the entire work
The Prelude (FFIV) - used as the "engine" of the prelude and in the second part as the singing voice
Main Theme (FFVII) - It's the first theme which enters soon after the introduction and which reappears at the end, mutated
Final Fantasy Theme - used as the theme of the fugue
Hope you'll enjoy this little thing I made using the Garritan Steinway Basic, all played LIVE!
