A Gift to Nerds Like Me

This next one is an arrangement of a few tunes from a video game that is a personal favorite of mine.  This is a medley of tunes from the video game series The Legend of Zelda, and was arranged and orchestrated by Aulis Poyhonen.  It was performed by the Brass Academy Group X at Kymi Brass 2013, a link of which can be found here.

The arrangement, as video game arrangements go, is quite good, and there are a lot of spots that work well, especially for an ensemble of brass and percussion.  The performance, is amateurish with a lot of little issues here and there that prevent the quality of the recording from reaching a level that would be good for a well known piece of video game music.

  1. If you like Legend of Zelda Music, my all time favorite video on youtube is:

    Granted it's for symphony, but so many meaty brass parts!

    I'd love to play the version that Brass Academy Group X did though!
