Live Concert Featuring Music from Skyrim, Oblivion, and Morrowind Opens in London on November 16th
Grab your passport, pack your bags, and set GPS for London! A live concert, orchestrated by Andrew Skeet, is being held at the Palladium Theater opens on November 16th in London. You can get tickets here!
Not only will Skyrim in Concert feature music from Skyrim, but it will also feature selections from Morrowind and Oblivion as well! Skeet has worked with music from the franchise before, including his version of “Far Horizons” on the album “The Greatest Video Game Music 2”.
But before you get too excited, there’s a detail to the whole story that might give you pause. Jeremy Soule, the original composer of the music from Skyrim is not at all pleased. His concern is that firstly, he was not informed and is not involved with the performance of music he wrote – and secondly, the music is transcribed, and likely is “fraught with errors”. Soule said that Skeet took liberties with his version of Far Horizions. Further, Soule feels that there is no regard for his hard work or the franchise showcasing it.
It’s always exciting to have my favorite game put to live music and I am hopeful that this performance is not disappointing. It is understandable to feel slighted and it’s hard to say whether or not this will celebrate Soule’s work, or dismiss it. We will see on the 16th!
