Chrono Cross on NPR
« on: December 10, 2012, 09:08:54 pm »
I was listening to NPR while at work and got an unexpected treat on "All Things Considered".  They did an article about this French-Canadian violinist translating video game music into classical arrangements.  Mentioned were the soundtracks of Angry Birds, Tetris, and Halo 3.  I was waiting with bated breath to see if any of the Chrono games would be mentioned.  They weren't.  Just when I was about to dismiss the article as an opportunity missed, the piece was anchored by the main theme from Chrono Cross.

Although not mentioned by name, we had some arranged Chrono music being performed on national radio for 15 seconds.  That, I think, can only bode well for the future.

Oh wow. Wish I could have heard that on the radio. I can only imagine the surprise.

I found the arrangement on youtube. Her other songs and arrangements, including of Final Fantasy and Secret of Mana, can be found at her website.
