Video Game Music + Orchestra = Happy Eardrums!
Few things are as delightful as hearing your favorite video game or TV themes recreated with that bombastic orchestra sound. Composer Walt Ribeiro is responsible for an entire series of excellent albums titled "For Orchestra" which takes famous music and gives it the orchestra treatment. His sixth album titled "Themes" covers quite a few video game themes including a treatment of Dr. Wily's fortress music from Mega Man 2 that is simply amazing (Track 15). The entire album is available at Bandcamp.com with an option to name your own price (including FREE). Enjoy and be sure to visit the For Orchestra website which features more of Walt Ribeiro's great work!
