Fans of Nintendo music are about to get a rare treat on September 23rd at 6 PM (UTC/GMT). A live broadcast from the Philharmonic Hall in Cologne will be made available for free on the Symphonic Legends website.

The program consist of two halves, the latter being dedicated entirely to Zelda Music!

This concert is the third in the acclaimed “Symphonic” series. The earlier two concerts Symphonic Shades and Symphonic Fantasies were dedicated to other video games.

The previous concerts have both seen CD releases, which raises hopes for this one getting the same treatment. It’s been 11 years since the release of Hyrule Symphony, an orchestral take on the Ocarina of Time soundtrack, which has left many Zelda fans desperate for a new release. We can only hope that this concert covers a wider range of compositions and not just the ones that have already seen orchestral arrangements. The titles of the songs don’t give out their origin, so all we can do is wait for Thursday and hope for the best!
