A new series from the studio behind Prescription for Sleep: Game Music Lullabies featuring live classical guitar performances from Final Fantasy.
SAN DIEGO – June 27, 2018 – Scarlet Moon Records is pleased to present Guitar Collections FINAL FANTASY IV, the first in what is planned as a series of live classical guitar albums featuring performances from across the Final Fantasy series. Guitarist William Carlos Reyes (of The OneUps) arranges and performs Nobuo Uematsu’s iconic themes from FINAL FANTASY IV to celebrate the game’s 27th anniversary. The album is licensed and now available for pre-order on Bandcamp ahead of the July 19, 2018 release date:
“I’ve always enjoyed Square Enix’s Piano Collections FINAL FANTASY series, but I have a personal preference for the sound of the guitar” explains Scarlet Moon Records producer Jayson Napolitano. “I wanted to produce a series of guitar albums starting with FINAL FANTASY IV, just as the Piano Collections series did. I also knew based on William Carlos Reyes’s past arrangements that he’d be perfect for this project with his ability to layer his performances in a very natural and pleasing way, and I couldn’t be happier with the result. I want Guitar Collections FINAL FANTASY to become a series, so we hope everyone’s as eager as we are to hear more!”
Key themes such as “Theme of Love,” “Welcome to Our Town!,” and the final dungeon theme, “Within the Giant,” are featured alongside an original composition by Reyes inspired by FINAL FANTASY IV titled “The Crystals.” The full track list is as follows:
01. Main Theme of FINAL FANTASY IV
02. Theme of Love
03. Welcome to Our Town!
04. Fight 2
06. Melody of Lute
07. Golbeza Clad in the Dark
