Distant Worlds – music from Final Fantasy

Last weekend I attended both Distant Worlds concerts in Munich. It was a blast. Both were really awesome and on each day they had a fine selection of titles they would only play on that day. because both days featured titles I wanted to hear live I had to go to both. To me the highlights were clearly the songs performed by Susan Calloway: Distant Worlds (FFXI), Answers (FFXIV), Eyes on me (FFVIII), Kiss me goodbye (FFXII). But one piece stood out among all and that was the Opera scene from FFVI “Maria and Draco”. It was performed live by three singers and it was simply amazing. It was definitely worth the prices and the travel and I’ll be there again if they indeed return in 2014.
