Notes arranger and project director Eric Buchholz had this to say regarding the announcement of Hero of Time:

“Orchestral recordings of music from The Legend of Zelda have become increasingly popular over the last several years. With Hero of Time, we sought to create a single, cohesive experience that weaves all of the complex underlying themes of the game, like impermanence and mortality, with Koji Kondo’s timeless melodies that have become as iconic as the game itself. The orchestration takes an ‘east-meets-west’ approach, with the inclusion of taiko ensembles, eastern woodwinds, and harmonies found prevalent in Japanese film and game scores.”
