Distant Worlds

IMG_1114
Friday evening we went to see Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY performed by the STL Symphony. I’ve never really been to a symphony before, so I was excited to go to this one. However, the subject and crowd being what they were, this wasn’t exactly the usual symphony audience. That didn’t take too much away from enjoying it though.

The tracklist for Friday night:
FINAL FANTASY VII: Opening – Bombing Mission
FINAL FANTASY SERIES: Victory Theme
FINAL FANTASY XIV: Torn from the Heavens
FINAL FANTASY VI: Character Theme Medley
FINAL FANTASY XI: Fighters of the Crystal
FINAL FANTASY XI: Memoro de la Stono – Distant Worlds
FINAL FANTASY VIII: Balamb GARDEN ~ Ami
FINAL FANTASY IX: Roses of May
LIGHTNING RETURNS: FINAL FANTASY XIII: Light Eternal
FINAL FANTASY SERIES: Chocobo Medley 2012
-INTERMISSION-
FINAL FANTASY VII: JENOVA COMPLETE
FINAL FANTASY X: Zanarkand
FINAL FANTASY III: DS Opening
FINAL FANTASY V: Main Theme
FINAL FANTASY VII: Main Theme
FINAL FANTASY IX: Festival of the Hunt
FINAL FANTASY XIV: Answers
FINAL FANTASY SERIES: Battle & Victory Theme Medley
FINAL FANTASY SERIES: Main Theme
-ENCORE-
FINAL FANTASY VII: ONE WINGED ANGEL

It was great hearing all of these done by an orchestra in person! My only complaint is that there isn’t enough IX love, but I’m super biased as IX is my favorite of all.

STL Symphony did a really wonderful job and maybe one day I’ll go see them again during a normal performance.

  1. I’ve seen Distant Worlds a few times. They are the best musical performance I’ve ever seen and I’ll gladly go again when they come to Chicago. I agree about your IX bias, too. It’s the best game in the series!

    • It was my first time going and it was great! I’ll definitely go again when they return to Saint Louis. I just hope I wont have such noisy people in the row behind me again ^^;.

      IX is really the only one that I’ve finished because the story kept me hooked and I loved the characters. I liked the music from it too, so I would love to hear them play more from it!
