Following the unprecedented, sell-out success of live shows across the globe, Laced Records have teamed up with Merregnon Studios and Square Enix to bring you the Final Symphony & Symphonic Fantasies Tokyo deluxe double CD bundle edition.
 
Recorded, mixed and mastered at London’s legendary Abbey Road Studios with the London Symphony Orchestra, Final Symphony features arrangements from Final Fantasy VI, VII & X, while Symphonic Fantasies Tokyo, performed by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, includes music from some of Square Enix’s most cherished role-playing franchises, including Kingdom Hearts, Secret of Mana and Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross.
 
The chart-topping Final Symphony features the talents of conductor Eckehard Stier and solo pianist Katharina Treutler, both of whom delighted audiences during the award-winning tour, with the entire production overseen by illustrious Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu.
 
Originally performed in 2012, Symphonic Fantasies Tokyo was the first all-European video game concert production to take place in Japan. More than 4600 fans were in attendance, and the concerts sold out within days. Fresh off the back of a sold-out concert at London’s Barbican, Symphonic Fantasies Tokyo is a tour de force of orchestral composition and performance, conducted by Eckehard Stier, with exclusive arrangements by Merregnon Studios’ Jonne Valtonen and Roger Wanamo.
