The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary Symphony
28 October 2011
This year is the 25th Anniversary of The Legend of Zelda and Nintendo organised three symphonies, one in Tokyo, one in Los Angeles and one in London on the 25th of October. I attended the London one.
They handed out these programmes at the door and had a small amount of merchandise available, which was way too expensive so I didn't bother getting any.
The symphony was in the Hammersmith Apollo and there was a huge projection the latest trailer for Skyward Sword projected on the outside of the building as we were queuing to enter.
There was a large screen which featured lots of in-game footage to match the musical arrangements (massively nerdy but amazing).
The symphony was introduced by Eiji Aonuma and Zelda Williams gave most of the track introductions.
They played music from most of the modern Zelda games including Twilight Princess and Wind Waker. This track was a particular highlight for me (Nintendo may get this taken down).
The performance was amazing and and I'm looking forward to getting my CD with the Limited Edition version of Skyward Sword.
