Watch the Orchestral Sonic Medley

Watch the Orchestral Sonic Medley

Sonic SceneRecorded from Taiwan Video Games Live Session

I admit, I have a very soft spot in my heart for orchestral music.  It is one of the main reasons why I find the soundtrack to Sonic Unleashed one of the best efforts in the series thus far.

So, I was pleasantly surprised when, inmy inbox this morning, I found a link to a Blognik post yesterday containing a YouTube video.  It’s from Taiwan, and it’s from the global Video Games Live tour, organized by Tommy Tallarico.

A couple minutes in, the fun begins.

A concert spectator caught on camera the entire medley performed from the original Sonic the Hedgehog.  It’s done by a full orchestra, and it’s quite lengthy…and good.  You haven’t lived until you’ve enjoyed the Green Hill Zone theme in non-synth bliss.  You’ll notice as you watch below that a brief history of Sonic plays on the large monitors as the orchestra plays.

Now, if only a clean copy of the medley could be recorded to CD…
