Videogame soundtracks can be absolutely beautiful. In the past ten years, video game soundtracks have began winning mainstream awards, and though not all of us are avid gamers, I’m sure we can appreciate the composition the different pieces.
An Artiden Friend sent me the collection of Final Fantasy piano solos below and I’m now learning them! There is something to be said about playing well-written, elaborate scores.
At the moment, I’m working on Somnus (the first piece below).
Final Fantasy XV
Yoko Shimomura – Somnus / Dreaming of the Dawn
This is one of my favourites. I am currently working on this one. I absolutely love how it starts so quietly and still manages to become so complex later on.
Yoko Shimomura – Sorrow Without Solace
Yoko Shimomura – Blest Be the Moonlight / Luna
Yoko Shimomura – Apocalypsis Noctis
Yoko Shimomura – Valse di Fantastica
If you’re a fan of waltzes, this one could give you a break from the typical Classical waltz.
