Celebrating the life and work of one of video gaming’s greatest ever composers, Symphonic Odysseys London is the first ever UK concert dedicated solely to the music of Nobuo Uematsu.

Featuring breath-taking orchestral arrangements of some of Uematsu-san’s most popular melodies – including themes from Blue Dragon, The Last Story, Lost Odyssey and, of course, Final Fantasy – Symphonic Odysseys London is an unforgettable journey through 30 glorious years of video game music.

Performed by the world-famous London Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Eckehard Stier, together with the London Symphony Chorus, acclaimed pianist Mischa Cheung and a full kazoo fanfare, Symphonic Odysseys London includes revised arrangements from Jonne Valtonen and Roger Wanamo, the composing team behind the critically acclaimed and best-selling album of Final Fantasy music, Final Symphony.
