On Wednesday 30 May, Classic FM is joining forces with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and PlayStation to present PlayStation in Concert, celebrating the very best in video game music.

Playing favourite themes from chart-topping games, the 80-strong Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will be joined by the City of London Choir to perform music from The Last of Us™, The Last Guardian™, Uncharted 2: Among Thieves™ and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception™, Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, LittleBigPlanet™, Horizon Zero Dawn™ and more.

This exhilarating live show – featuring a spectacular light display – will take you on a musical journey from vast deserts and overgrown ruins, to ancient artefacts and futuristic landscapes, celebrating some of the most memorable gaming music from the past 20 years.

Presenting the show will be Jessica Curry, one of the leading figures in computer game music today, as well as being the BAFTA award-winning composer of the soundtrack to Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. Jessica also presented High Score on Classic FM – the first series on British radio dedicated to video game music.

The concert will also feature the first use of EnCue at the Royal Albert Hall – a real-time programme note app that delivers media and content to concertgoers’ smartphones as the music unfolds from the stage.

James Williams, Managing Director of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, said: “PlayStation has been a force in the world of arts and entertainment for some of its fans’ entire lives. Many people today have grown up with the music video games, and have come to love the sound of the orchestra through playing.

“This truly 21st century concert, accompanied by the latest technology to enhance the concert experience, is a signpost for where orchestral music is expanding.”

“Having this opportunity to work with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, to realise some iconic PlayStation soundtracks in concert form is a dream come true. We have been working closely with game studios and composers to create new, and never before heard, arrangements to perform in one of the world's premier concert music venues,” says Alastair Lindsay, Head of Audio, Worldwide Studios Creative Services Group.

Sam Jackson, Classic FM’s Managing Editor, said: “The success of our two series of High Score, and the fact that over half a million under-25-year-olds now listen to Classic FM every week, is proof of a growing younger audience for classical music in the UK. We’re really pleased to be partnering with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and PlayStation on this, the first event of its kind, which promises to be an exciting night of world-class music.”

PlayStation in Concert will take place at 7.30pm on Wednesday 30 May 2018. For more information and to buy tickets: https://www.rpo.co.uk/whats-on/eventdet ... in-concert.

I listen to Classic FM because I'm hip and trendy like all those under 25s. :datass:

Bet this will sell out very quickly.

Only interested if they play that music from the Demo Disc on the PS1 with the giant manta ray in the ocean.

Whenever I see "World Premiere" all I can hear in my mind now is that Xbox announcer from E3 saying "World Prem-eeeeeer" for every single game.

Do you think the kids these days will recognise the tunes from Final Fantasy 7? They were pretty epic.

They also need to start this show with the power on jingle from the PS1.

I was thinking the same thing.

*scratches head*

Er, Metal Gear Solid, perhaps Final Fantasy 7 at a push?

Hearing a tune played from a game I've played I might recognise it, but beyond that PlayStation isn't generally known for having iconic themes everyone instantly recognises.

“But I don't want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can't help that,” said the Cat: “we're all mad here".

Horizon: Zero Dawn has some beautiful music that I'd hope I'd be able to recognize, but beyond that I doubt very much that I'd be able to tell what the strawberry float's going on in the concert.

One day, I know we'll meet again, under the Iron Sky...

Hmm this needs to come to Birmingham Symphony Hall and I'll be there. The Zelda concert in 2016 was fantastic.
