Final Symphony II will feature music from Square Enix's world-renowned video games FINAL FANTASY® V, VIII, IX and XIII in entirely new arrangements.
Final Symphony II marks the third concert collaboration between the London Symphony Orchestra and Merregnon Studios, the original Final Symphony in 2013 having been the orchestra’s first ever live performance of video game music. The LSO also performed on Final Symphony the album, which was recorded at London’s Abbey Road Studios and released as a global, digital download earlier this year. It went straight to the top of the iTunes Classical chart in more than ten countries at launch, including the UK, USA, Canada, France and Sweden, while also racking up top 5 Classical Album positions in both the Billboard and Official UK Charts.
