Video Game Music in a classical flavour

The London Philharmonic Orchestra is known for being one of the best orchestras in the world, and for trying to reach places in where classical music is not usually present.

Sometime ago, they released an album called  The Greatest Video Game Music, full of medley and classical compositions based on the music of videogames from all times. It was very successful, so now they’re recording it’s sequel, The Greatest Video Game Music 2.

This new album includes, among others, a theme based on Sonic the hedgehog, called A Symphonic Suite.

Little is known about what levels or games music will it perform, except that it’s Sonic based.

The album is released 6th November, and the full track list contains music from games like Chrono Trigger, Fez or Portal.
