Japanese amateur orchestra puts on a nearly 2-hours Zelda: Breath of the Wild concert
Amateur in name only
Looking for a way to kill some time between now and the launch of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom? Why not set aside some time to enjoy the music of its predecessor, Breath of the Wild, in an all-new way?
The Japanese amateur orchestra Ensemble G.A.P. have gathered to put on a 116-minute concert dedicated to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This concert has an opening act, three parts, and two encores, making for 16 movements altogether.
The concert appropriately kicks off with the Switch 2017 Presentation trailer music for Breath of the Wild, and things closed out with the “Tears of the Kingdom Main Theme” from the E3 2021 Nintendo Direct presentation. In-between is a collection of tunes Breath of the Wild players will no doubt find familiar.
I LOOOVE this!! Always mean to check out more orchestras performances, but it can be tough to find video game ones locally
It's great from the couple tracks I've listened to!
I never understood why they did not reuse in game that track from the first trailer. It's great, especially the opening melody. There is a great melodic phrase there that even had the potential of being used as a recurring motif throughout the game. It could have helped with the whole "there is no distinct themes in BotW ost" thing.
