From 7:00 PM Bayerischer Rundfunk will present soundtracks from games for just under an hour. In addition to music from The Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros., extracts from Symphonic Fantasies Tokyo will be featured, including suites of themes from both Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy. This concert was originally performed in 2012 by the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Tokyo Philharmonic Chorus under the baton of Eckehard Stier, with arrangements from the pens of Jonne Valtonen and Roger Wanamo.
The feature, Super Mario & Co., includes an extensive interview with producer Thomas Böcker, who talks about his video game music concerts and gives listeners a fascinating insight into his work.
Further information about the programmes can be found on the official website of BR-KLASSIK.
