Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses CD on the way

Posted on April 6, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in General Nintendo, News

Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses has been ongoing for several years, but the concern never really had a true CD. Fans won’t have to hold out much longer though.

In an interview with Attack of the Fanboy, show producer Jason Michael Paul confirmed that news is coming “soon.” Pre-orders will be taking place on the official website.

When official details about the CD are announced, we’ll let you know.

    Dang, better save up some extra money then. Seriously though, how is this that different from the 30th Anniversary Concert CD??

    • JasonBall

      Because this symphony is two ****ing hours.

      • NintendoPSXTheSecond

        But the 30th Anniversary CD has almost all the tracks of the Symphony of the Goddesses. Same arrangements you know?

        • JasonBall

          Um… No it doesn’t. At all. They are VERY different.

          • MusubiKazesaru

            A few of them sound the same and are at most just re-recorded like the Wind Waker track.

          • JasonBall

            A “few.” Yes. I agree, a few are reused for the CD.

          • NintendoPSXTheSecond

            Yes they are. Symphony of the Goddesses and 30th Anniversary Concert are both composed, produced and directed by Chad Seiter.
            “As Composer, Arranger, Orchestrator, and Music Director for The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses and The Legend of Zelda: 25th Anniversary Symphony live concert tours, Chad Seiter’s acclaimed orchestral arrangements of Koji Kondo’s iconic video game scores have been performed by the world’s most prestigious orchestras including The Royal Philharmonic, The Tokyo Philharmonic and The National Symphony.”
            Right from his website and he’s credited in the credits of the 30 Anniversary CD paper slip that comes with it.

          • JasonBall

            Okay. I can see how this might make it seem like they’re the same. But as someone who’s listened to the entire 30th CD several times, and been to the concert twice, I can confirm there is very little crossover. Would you like me to go into specifics? I can easily compare song lists. Producer being the same is not indicative of similar piece list.

          • NintendoPSXTheSecond

            I’ll do the comparison for you.
            Symphony of the Goddesses and 30th Anniversary CD share the same compositions for tracks
            – Twilight Princess Suite
            – WindWaker suite
            – ALBW + TH suite
            – Gerudo Valley
            – Zelda Theme
            – Hyrule Castle
            – Boss Theme
            Those are the same compositions and arrangements done by the same producers, arrangers and composers. The sound may be a bit different due to different Orchestra companies that are used when traveling the world but it’s the same composition. Same for the new compositions NOT heard in Symphony of the Goddesses and only on the 30th Anniversary Concert. Since those were new compositions done by Chad Seiter and his crew for that event. It’s not about song lists, it’s about it being the SAME composer doing BOTH events and using the SAME compositions for songs AS WELL as making new compositions not heard in SotG. There is no disputing this as it is a fact and stated even so on his website.

            I’ve been to the concerts and have the CD as well, if you’re still going to try and attempt to change fact and say those compositions are not the same then you’re beyond saving.

            30th anniversary CD doesn’t have:

            -25th anniversary medley (duh)
            -Kakariko village
            -Main theme
            -Ballad of the Goddess
            -Dragon Roost island medley
            -Link to the Past movement
            -Link’s Awakening movement
            -Majora’s Mask movement
            -Ocarina of Time movement
            -Overture
            -Spirit Tracks
            -Dungeons
            -Songs of the Hero
            -Creation of Hyrule
            -Ballad of the Windfish

            Who is ”beyond saving” now…? And no, the tracks I listed sound nothing like the ones on the 30th anniversary CD. I have listened to them all for years and just compared them again.

          • NintendoPSXTheSecond

            Never did I EVER state the 30th Concert has ALL the SotG compositions. I stated it has some of them done by the Tokyo Philharmonic and Chad Seiter. The facts are in various easy searches mate.

          • Tlink7

            ”Seriously though, how is this that different from the 30th Anniversary Concert CD??”

            is what you said. I’d say FIFTEEN tracks is quite the difference… don’t strawman it up

          • JasonBall

            I like how this guy made an uneducated statement about something we know everything about because we live and breathe it, then we both just clamp onto him like a ReDead and suck the ignorance out. Like, seriously, we know things and aren’t afraid to show it when someone trods on Zelda music. I don’t recall seeing you ever be so detailed and into an argument before.

          • Tlink7

            Yeah. I mean everyone makes a mistake once in a while… but when someone claims their ignorant and faulty statement is fact AND is an a$$hole about it to good ol’ mr Ball, I tend to get a bit more fierce in a discussion 😛

            I’m sure we’d notice if just five seconds were different in any of the Zelda symphonies. I know I would be like ”WAT, DIS IS NEW” immediately xD speaking of amazing Zelda music; have you seen this yet? https://ericbuchholz.bandcamp.com/album/hero-of-time-music-from-the-legend-of-zelda-ocarina-of-time it is really, really, REALLYYYY good 😀

          • JasonBall

            It was okay. I always prefer Nintendo’s official composers though.

            Yeah, I always notice little things too. Thanks for helping me out.

          • Tlink7

            Oh me too, but I found ”Hero of Time” to be very good as well though. Especially the Ganondorf/Gerudo themes 😀
            I’m sure you could have managed on your own too, but I couldn’t just sit there 😛

          • NintendoPSXTheSecond

            Excuse me? Did I not state I have the CD and went to the concert myself? Despite me admiting to my initial comment mistake, every proof following was factual and based on basic research and understanding of composition/arrangement.
            I’ve probably spent over $3000 just on Zelda collectibles/merchandizing alone, so I don’t 100% appreciate being told I “trod on Zelda music” or assume I don’t know everything about Zelda myself.

          • JasonBall

            Heh. Sorry, I guess we’re going a little too far. You did just fine after your first comment. No hard feelings.

            PS: the amount of dough you’ve spent on merch has no bearing on your series IQ. Its quite a braggart thing to do.

          • JasonBall

            Yes, there are some tracks that cross over. But there are also several tracks from the concert that have never been on a CD, and some are very big, such as the OoT and LttP movements, the brand new SS and BotW medleys, Dragon Roost, Temple of Time, OoT’s goddess cutscene theme, the very beginning intro overlude medley, among likely others. Also, the LBW/TFH theme on the CD is new. In the concert, there are two separate medleys with different components. You can’t deny there are tracks exclusive to the live concert that warrant a new CD release. I also think the boss medleys are different, but I could be wrong on that one.

          • NintendoPSXTheSecond

            Well, I will admit my first comment was a little ignorant. I never meant to signify that I didn’t acknowledge Symphony of the Goddesses didn’t have tracks that the 30th doesn’t have. Perhaps, I’m just a little bothered I have to spend more money on another CD that will have half a list I already have lol
            That aside, you’re right that there are tracks not on 30th Concert but equally I’m not wrong that Chad Seiter composed for SotG and 30th. Next time I’ll spend more than 5 seconds to make a more coherent comment at first.

          • JasonBall

            Ah, that’s alright. I do the same. Thanks for understanding my point and admitting your rush. I also understand where you’re coming from with the paying again thing.

  • JasonBall

    Best news in weeks. I have wanted this for years. But I’ll still go to the concert once a year when it comes to my area as long as they’re doing it.

    • Tlink7

      Same mr Ball! I’ve wanted CD-quality version of the symphony tracks for yearssss ;-; I had to do with cam-rip quality for ones that weren’t on the Skyward Sword CD or in the 30th anniversary album

      • JasonBall

        Exactly! We know each other’s pain.

    • Alfonso Paredes

      I am really waiting for the A Link to the Past Medley <3

  • Yesssss! Finally can add it to my collection of every LoZ cd.

  • MusubiKazesaru

    I already have tickets to a concert later this year, but this is great news. This is severely overdue.

  • Fandangle

    Call me when it gets a vinyl release.

    • Tlink7

      Probably never? xD

  • jorden1506

    Well they kinda said it in another interview last october

  • Tlink7

    Ohhh awesome! Can’t wait <3

  • I’ll just put it in my Discman. It has skip protection now, this being the year 1998

  • ibo
