Earlier this summer at Stockholm Concert Hall, the Symphonic Poem of Final Fantasy VI was performed by The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and today, in cooperation with Merregnon Studios, that performance is now online.

The delicious sounding 20-minute video of the Symphonic Poem is a beautiful special arrangement of tracks from Final Fantasy VI, it was arranged for the Final Symphony series of concerts celebrating music from the franchise.

Telling the story of Terra Branford which includes Kefka and Terra main themes, it was originally written by composer Nobuo Uematsu.

Final Fantasy VI is currently celebrating its 20th anniversary and Final Symphony producer Thomas Böcker had this to say,

The music of Nobuo Uematsu remains as powerful and as moving today as it did when we first heard it twenty years ago. It’s been an honor and a pleasure to bring his music to the concert hall and now, for the first time ever, we’re delighted to be able to share the Symphonic Poem online with the world in this, Final Fantasy VI’s 20th anniversary year. The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the world’s finest orchestras, with a long tradition of performing video gaming’s best-loved melodies, and they have produced a concert video that does true justice to the music.

Sit back, relax and enjoy the full 20-minute performance in high-definition.
