Gorgeous new Zelda piano medley

JordanApril 7th, 2013 by Jordan

YouTube Pianist PL511 has become rather famous for their beautiful video game remixes and other piano songs. Covering music from numerous series including Zelda, Halo, Pokémon, and Kingdom Hearts, they have never failed to make music that is truly gorgeous.

Recently, after over half a year without any Zelda covers, Pl511 has graced us with another Zelda medley – and it could be one of their best yet. Titled “Zelda’s Lament,” this wonderful tune combines many favorite tunes from throughout the series including “Zelda’s Lullaby,” “The Song of Healing,” “The Legendary Hero,” and even Midna’s and Fi’s laments. It is definitely worth checking out, so take the jump to give it a listen!

I have always loved the music of the Zelda series, and quite honestly it is many of the quieter songs like these that appeal to me the most. Pl511 has taken five of my absolute favorites and combined them into a collective whole that sounds beautiful and perfect. Honestly, the only gripe I could come up with is that it never leaves the quiet tempo the whole song uses . . . and is that really a bad thing?

How do you like this song? Do you think Pl511′s cover brings out the best in these themes, or is there something they could have done better? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

    That was so beautiful . . . *sniff* I love how there’s always constant, steady motion, it makes it all sound like a lullaby and I love it!!

  • JononTomin

    This was very soothing :) I like how people still can make remixes of Zelda music that still sound original and awesome

    • MyOtherShipIsAnArwing

      I Know! It’s like Nintendo wanted to make sure their soundtracks lived on, even if the franchise didn’t do well.

  • Zelda4Life

    I love this. Fi’s Lament gets me every time. Beautiful job!

  • TheHotGirlintheComicShop

    So lovely. I adore the Song of Healing. ♥ This whole piece was very soothing and beautiful, bringing to mind some of the softer moments of the game.

  • MissaMissa

    I love how the songs just came together flawlessly. I am amazed at the beautiful sound this creates and really represents the beauty of Zelda.

  • JeredenDonnar

    loved it, but it needed more SOng of Healing, like the next phrase or two.

    I need the piano music for this

  • LinkyKins

    This could help me fall asleep at night, it’s just so beautiful and relaxing…

  • The Hylian Monoltih

    …oh my goddess.

    Mind=Blown
    Heart=Broken

    Zelda’s Lullaby. Its rendition was as great as every other.
    Then the Song of Healing. It haunted me, like a sad shadow behind me.
    Midna’s Lament. Full of tragedy and memories, desperate for help but too weak to move, just like Midna’s Desperate hour reborn as a heartfelt memoir.
    Laruto’s Lament. Its melody was unfamiliar for a moment, then it came through with all the grief of Laruto herself, sadly playing the song and recalling her untimely death.
    Then Fi’s Lament. I believe that this is where I started really feeling like crying.

    …yeah, this… heart=broken.

  • Link is a legend

    This is quite possibly the most beautiful thing I have ever been blessed to hear.

  • Micah

    Pretty awesome melody. I love the Zelda franchise…

  • Kelsey

    Oh wow… where can I find the sheet music for this? I want to learn to play it too!

      Pl511, like many YouTube artists, doesn’t actually use sheet music. They mostly do it by ear, but I think they’ve got a sort of outline they used when putting it together. If you contact their YouTube account, you can see if they’ll share it with you.

  • Westar

    I promised myself not to cry, but I failed terribly…

  • dogman (but cats are cooler)

    this is really cool and i am strong so i wont cry

  • zeldalover1

    I love these songs!! They are sooo gorgeous!

  • Pl511

    Thanks a lot for writing this article! I’m honoured to hear such praise, and it’s really great seeing that so many other people enjoyed the medley too. The slow tempo *could* be seen as being a bit of an issue, but I think the flow of the piece would have been disrupted quite a lot if I had sped it up any more than I did during Midna’s Lament. That bit was surprisingly fast/hard to play. Thanks again!
