Zelda Reorchestrated project ends
With a tip of their hat, the Zelda Reorchestrated team have announced the conclusion of their musical journey.
Having delivered three Soundscapes albums and the ZREO Open Symphony since the project’s inception in 2007, it is perhaps their Twilight Symphony that has been the true hallmark of their success.
A post sharing the announcement on the project’s website, reads: “Our mission statement has always been: ‘At Zelda Reorchestrated, we are committed to lush symphonic performances of the greatest songs from The Legend of Zelda as they would have sounded from the warm halls and intimate expression of a live philharmonic. We do not seek profit or fame. We simply love Zelda and wish to share its inspiration on all of us with all of you.’
“For almost 9 years, Zelda Reorchestrated has been producing Zelda arrangements explicitly out of love for the franchise and the compositions they have to offer. However, the time has come to bring the project to a close.
“Twilight Symphony, in our own humble opinion, is ZREO’s greatest achievement. It was a long time coming, and while not everything has panned out the way we wanted for the project, we have decided to set Twilight Symphony free into the wilds as a final thank you for all you’ve made possible for us to accomplish.
“If you haven’t already discovered, Twilight Symphony has been available via torrent since November 2012. We understand that out of loyalty and respect, many of you have avoided this as a means of obtaining the album. We sincerely appreciate that. It was our heartfelt desire to release the album through our record label, Joypad Records, via iTunes, and other digital outlets.
“Unfortunately, it appears that will not be happening, so we are not opposed to you finding an alternative means through which to obtain it. Ultimately, we just want you to have it for your enjoyment. “
